Keller is ineligible to play this season due to NCAA transfer rules, but he can practice with the team immediately and is expected to arrive on campus next week. Classes begin on the Corvallis campus Sept. 24.
Keller has three years of eligibility remaining, to be completed in four years, starting with the 2013 season as a sophomore.
A wild recruiting ride saw Keller commit to the hometown school, Fresno State on three separate occasions, backing off twice, before ultaimtely signing his LOI with the Bulldogs. It was down to Oregon State, Cal and FSU in the end, and Keller also had received offers during the recruiting cycle from Utah, WSU, UNLV, Iowa State, UNLV and others.
The 6-4, 285-pound Keller attended San Joaquin High in Fresno. He was ranked the No. 78 OT prospect nationally by Scout.com and rated 3 stars. He was named to the 2011 Fresno Bee All-Area team as a senior, a two-time All-Valley league selection and twice was named the team's offensive lineman of the year.
Oregon State opens the season this Saturday at home against the No. 13 Wisconsin Badgers at 1:05 p.m. Tickets remain and may be purchased by calling 1-800-GO-BEAVS by 5 p.m. Friday or at the Reser Stadium ticket office (under the Dam Cam) starting at 9 a.m. Saturday.
