Arden Key of MLK in Lithonia, Ga. may only be a sophomore, but he's got a big future ahead of him.

 Arden Key (6'4/215) is a sophomore defensive end from MLK High School in Lithonia, Ga. that will become a national name before his high school career is done. 

Key's quickness off the line is borderline unfair against offensive tackles, and he has the strength to hold off drive blocks and maneuver through traffic to make tackles inside. Key lines up at end in MLK's 3-4 defense, but every once in a while, he slides inside into a defensive tackle position. That he's able to play all along the defensive line with the quickness of a safety at his size makes for a lot of mismatches.

Key already claims offers from the likes of Kentucky, Vanderbilt, and UCLA among others, but it's a safe bet that he'll be able to have his pick of schools if he continues progressing along the path he's on.

Here is a look at him in action against Dunwoody on 10/12/12.
