Lexington Bryan Station safety Devon Key is one of the top targets left on the board for Western Kentucky

Western Kentucky University's football program has 15 verbal commitments in the Class of 2016, including some of the top in-state talent in the Commonwealth. Now, the Toppers are after

Devon Key is having a sensational season on both sides of the ball for Bryan Station.

Key is considered one of the elite athletes in the state and projects as a safety in college, but he's doing a little bit of everything for the 5-1 Defenders during his senior season.

"I'm really focused on my season right now," Key said. "That's why I haven't committed anywhere."

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Key sure has a lot of schools looking at him, including Western Kentucky. He said the Toppers' coaches told him he's one of the top targets left on their recruiting board. He's one of the last in-state targets that WKU is after.

"They have told me that," Key said.

Key said he likes the Toppers and is likely to make a visit there next weekend. He made a visit to Miami of Ohio two weeks ago and last weekend spent time at Toledo.

"WKU is after me pretty hard," Key said.

In six games, Key leads his team in tackles with 34 and has two interceptions, including one he returned for a touchdown. He also rushed for 538 yards and seven TDs and caught 20 passes for 383 yards and eight more scores.

Key had 107 tackles and two interceptions as a junior.
