Top DE recruit commits to South Carolina because of classes where ‘you have to try to fail’

As first reported by Palmetto Sports and brought to Prep Rally’s attention by The Big Lead, Key, a rising junior defensive end Lithonia (Ga.) High, cited USC’s coaching staff as a key reason why he committed to the Gamecocks rather than in-state power Georgia. Yet, he also said that the school’s ability to create an easy road for its athletes as a key reason why he wanted to head to Columbia.
"The academic part, it's like you have to try to fail," Key told Palmetto Sports.
That probably isn’t the best way for a young prospect to endear himself to a large body of alumni who will, in turn, spend their hard earned money to watch him play. It stands to reason that most of those fans probably spent more time ensuring that they would graduate than Key plans on doing himself.
Then again, maybe Key was just misunderstood. Perhaps he meant to cite South Carolina’s tutor program as the key to lifting up players’ academic performance.

That doesn’t seem too likely, but then again, insulted South Carolina fans may be a lot more forgiving if Key performs as he’s expected to at the next level. After a junior season in which he recorded 12 sacks and 58 tackles, the 6-foot-5, 198 pound defensive end will be expected to make an impact rapidly after arriving on campus.
An impact on the field of course. Not necessarily the classroom.
