Former top QB Kiel picks Cincinnati

Gunner Kiel has finally picked his next - last? - college destination: he'll enroll at Cincinnati after transferring from Notre Dame. Kiel's story is one of the most prolonged recruiting tales imaginable. A can't miss pro-style QB prospect considered by most to be the top signal-caller in the country, Kiel committed to Indiana. Then LSU. Then Notre Dame. Then actually enrolled with the Fighting Irish, but after Everett Golson earned the starting gig as a freshman last year, Kiel decided to leave after realizing he'd be a backup for at least the first three years of his college experience.

Te'o has long visit with Dolphins

The Dolphins hold 11 draft picks, including five in the top 85, making their due diligence an important offseason step. That diligence led them Wednesday to the draft's most controversial and enigmatic prospect: Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o, who flew into Hollywood-Fort Lauderdale International Airport. His visit began Wednesday evening and will last into Thursday, a source confirmed to the Post. Te'o will count as one of the 30 visits the Dolphins are allowed before the start of the NFL draft, which begins April 25 in New York City. The prospects can meet members of the organization but cannot work out. Te'o, listed at 6-foot-1 and 241 pounds, was projected as a top-15 pick before his stock plummeted.

Tribute video brings Redick to tears

J.J. Redick isn't much for surprises, and he wasn't all that interested in having any for his return to Orlando Wednesday night. "I need to be in the moment," he said. But Redick was caught off guard, learning only 90 minutes before the game that the Magic had prepared a video tribute in his honor. It was a classy gesture by the club and fans rose to give J.J. a standing ovation midway through the first period. ... Redick teared up and waved to the crowd, his coolness having melted away. There was a shot of Redick's wife, Chelsea, on the Jumbotron, wiping her eyes, retouching her makeup. A nice, bittersweet moment of a forgettable season, a season of rebuilding and reunions.
