Gamecocks target Arden Key opts for LSU instead


) Four-star defensive end Arden Key (Atlanta, Ga./Hapeville Charter) committed to LSU during a live spot on Next Class 2015 on Fox Sports. South Carolina was also under consideration for the two-time Gamecocks decommitment.

South Carolina had Key's last official visit, which came the weekend of January 23. He visited LSU the weekend before and was scheduled to go to Auburn on January 30 but canceled the trip and chose to decide between the Bayou Bengals and Gamecocks.

Key said he made his mind up on Monday morning. Key said he put the names of both schools in a hat and drew the name out best out of five times to make his decision.

Key is scheduled to sign his National Letter of Intent on Wednesday at 9 a.m. at his school.
