Auburn Undercover Staff
Senior Recruiting Analyst
Keith Niebuhr joined 247Sports as a national reporter in June of 2012 after having spent the previous two years at Rivals.com. From 2000-2010, Keith covered a variety of sports -- and recruiting -- for the St. Petersburg Times (now Tampa Bay Times), Florida's largest newspaper. Before that, he had stints at FoxSports.com in New York and both the Gainesville Sun and Ocala Star-Banner in Florida. A graduate of the University of Florida, Keith got his start in journalism covering Steve Spurrier's Gators from 1992-94. In 2001, Keith's story on the state of Florida's exclusion of achievements from all-black pre-integration schools in the record books was named one of the state's best. Born in Miami, Keith was raised in the Sunshine State. He attended his first college football game in 1978 (Army vs. Florida), and his first game at Jordan–Hare Stadium 13 years later. Today, Keith calls Atlanta home.
