Quotable: “Limestone is a nice place to be. It is beautiful up there, not too big, not too small. I toured the campus and liked the size of things. Limestone is a new program. They are trying to find someone who could be a leader on and off the field. I want to be that leader.” — Walter Mabrey

Jerry Keller

College chosen: Campbellsville University (Ky.)

The football team has been around for a while, and they are trying to rebuild. They didn't have a very good season last year.” — Dylan Clark
