UPDATE

Dane Key has committed to the Kentucky Wildcats, which you can read about here!


It’s Dane Key Decision Day in Lexington.

The talented wide receiver from Fredrick Douglass High School, who is the top high school prospect in Kentucky and a top 40 wide receiver nationally, will announce his decision today with Kentucky squarely in the mix, along with Oregon, South Carolina, and Michigan.

Key is a coveted legacy recruit, as his father Donte’ is a former linebacker at Kentucky. The 6’2 wideout has 100 percent of his crystal ball picks on 247 Sports going to Kentucky, although only three predictions have been cast and three predictions on Rivals this month have gone to Kentucky as well.

Landing Key would be huge for Kentucky, as they look to bolster the wide receiver group, especially considering Key’s father played for Kentucky and he’s right in their backyard.

Kentucky has had some luck pulling players from Fredrick Douglass. Dekel Crowdus and Jager Burton are currently on the roster, and Kentucky has a commitment from Ty Bryant in the Class of 2023.

The Cats have some stiff competition between South Carolina, Michigan, and Oregon, but Key is a major priority for Mark Stoops, Vince Marrow, and Kentucky.

Let’s hope Key decides to be a hometown hero at 6 p.m. and join Kentucky.
