Key Spurns Gamecocks, Picks LSU
Monday night, Arden Key decided Gamecock football wasn’t in his future. Again. Key, a four-star defensive end prospect from Lithonia, GA, chose LSU over USC on Fox Sports South TV. Key is the 9th decommittment from this year’s Carolina football recruiting class, once ranked as high as #2 in the country. Over the last year and a half, Key verbally committed to the Gamecocks and then changed his mind two other times. He said he came to his decision of LSU Monday morning only because he picked LSU’s name out of a hat more than South Carolina’s. Verbal commitments are not official. National Signing Day is February 4th.
