Key hitting the road this weekend

October 24, 2013 

Junior DE Arden Key of Lithonia, GA, a former USC commitment will visit LSU this weekend according to his coach.

Key continues to garner offers with Florida and Alabama two of the newest. Some of his other offers are USC, Clemson, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami, Ole Miss, North Carolina, Stanford, Tennessee, UCLA, Southern Cal, Virginia Tech, Washington and LSU.

There will no rush to judgement this time for Key who committed to USC in June and de-committed in September. "One thing I've talked to Arden about is playing football right now," said is coach Cortez Allen. "He's got so much time ahead of him. I'm trying to keep him grounded. It's tough on theses kids. Arden is a big, old baby and I don't want him to get caught up in the pressure and the hype."

Key and teammate Wesley Green, another former USC commitment, are very close and Key tends to follow the older Green's lead. Allen says USC is still very much in play for both. "They both are still excited about South Carolina but they are talking to guys and looking at different things," he said.

Key visited USC for a game earlier this season and could return for the Clemson-USC game.
