Devon Key has been considering a commitment to Western Kentucky for a few weeks and on Monday evening he decided to make it official.
Key, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound safety from Lexington (Ky) Bryan Station, confirmed to WKU Insider his commitment to the Hilltoppers.
"It feels great," he said. "It's a relief."
Key, who has made prior unofficial visits at WKU, recently made trips to Toledo and Miami of Ohio before making return visit to The Hill for Saturday's win over Middle Tennessee.
"After I got back up to Western I knew it was the place for me," he said. "I've been up there three or four times and each time I've been up there I have really enjoyed myself."
Key also stars at running back for Bryan Station, where he's totaled over 600 yards this season. Key informed WKU Insider that his future plans at WKU are in the secondary.
"They've said that they think that I could come in and if I work hard, I could have the possibility to start as a freshman," he said.
Upon his decision to commit, Key first called his recruiting coach, Hilltoppers secondary coach Mike Cassity and then head coach Jeff Brohm.
"They were really fired up to hear the news," he said.
