I don't know about that.  To play us he'll have to stay in Cinci for TWO WHOLE YEARS and given his track record to date I wouldn't bet the farm on that happening.

I could be wrong, but won't his eligibility expire in 2016? You only get 5 years and he has the redshirt year (2012), the sit out year (2013), and then playing years (2014-2016). And then we play them in 2017.

USA Today is on it, complete with a few quotes (HERE):

According to the story anyway, Kiel really likes the Cincinnati OC and QB coaches, and was also apparently excited with where the program is headed, which I assume means that he relishes in the thought of CIncinnati maybe eventually heading to the ACC or something along those lines. 

He also scoped out Ball State and Miami (OH) as well, the story said. Cincinnati.com also said that Ole Miss, Kansas State and Northern Illinois also contacted him.

(1) the awesomely named Munchie Legeux and (2) Brendon Kay, who won a Michigan High School state title up at Marine City in 2007 ....... but after that it's only 2 red-shirt freshmen who have (obviously) never taken a snap.

 

Kiel should be the front-runner to start in 2014, no doubt that was a factor in him choosing UC.

At some point I have to feel sorry for the kid.

I hope he settles down and finds a place where he can fit in, contribute, and learn some things about life beyond football.
