Throughout the past four months, one name has been near the top — or at the top — of the wish list for Alabama’s staff, fans, and commits: Keon Keeley.

Shortly before and after Keeley’s decommitment from Notre Dame, Alabama’s commitments openly pushed on social media for the the five-star to join the Tide’s 2023 class. Keeley, the No. 1 EDGE in the country, took notice of all the love shown by Bama’s pledges earlier this fall.

“I’ve seen them,” Keeley told us in September. “I appreciate the love from the Bama recruits. In season, we stay off (social) media. It’s nice for them to say that. I’ve kept in contact with some. They just tell me Alabama is Alabama; come be great.”

With Keeley being such a priority for Nick Saban‘s staff, it’s not a surprise to see that his commitment on Monday drew a big reaction.

Here are some social media posts from Alabama’s commits, staff members, and even players following Keeley’s announcement.
