Dane Key clicking with new QB Brock Vandagriff

Georgia transfer Brock Vandagriff made a believer of UK receiver Dane Key during spring practice.

“He’s a ball player and he’s also a really good leader that we’re so happy to have on this team because he just brings a lot to the table with everybody, just being around him and all the other guys clicking with him,” Key said on the Paul Finebaum show on the SEC Network. “All the other guys on the team, even the defensive guys, are clicking with Brock and that’s not really normal. He’s such a good leader that everybody on the team was clicking with him.”

Key also didn’t shy away from answering when Finebaum asked him about Texas and Oklahoma coming into the Southeastern Conference. Kentucky plays at Texas on Nov. 23.

“I think it’s an awesome opportunity that Texas and Oklahoma are now in the SEC. It’s just another great game to add to the schedule for every team in the SEC because those are two great opponents and everybody’s gonna be looking forward to playing them. I think we’re gonna be super excited to play there,” Key said.

The junior-to-be receiver also admitted NIL money is a reason for some players to stay closer to home to play in college

“A lot of guys who would leave their home state to go play at other schools, big name schools, a lot of kids are staying locally now so that they can play in front of their home state and also get a chance to earn NIL revenue and really make a name for themselves in their home state,” Key said.
