The bottom line about Chris Keys is that this kid is a football player… there is no question about it. Offense. Defense. Special teams. He does it all.
You will see two packages of highlights. The first one is Keys playing quarterback and mainly running and scrambling with the football. Keys, 6-2 and 205 pounds, runs in the 4.5 range. He has better quickness than speed and he has good speed. He shows great athletic ability with the football in his hands. He really caught my attention because you don’t expect someone this big to make the kind of plays he makes.
I think Keys is talented enough to play on offense at the next level… perhaps at wide receiver. But make no mistake about it. He could one day make a great living playing safety or linebacker on Sundays, if he does all the right things in Baton Rouge.
The second highlight package is mainly Keys on defense. He plays safety at the high school level and the first thing you notice is that he will really come up and strike you. Keys has linebacker size and that linebacker mentality but the speed of a safety. He sure covers a lot of ground once he recognizes the play. I was a little surprised at how well he “played” the ball in the air. He has a very nice break and always seems to be in the right spot to make the play.
At 6-2 and 205 pounds, Keys could play strong safety at LSU or grow into a linebacker. Either way, Tiger Head Coach Nick Saban has one heck of a player coming to Baton Rouge. Check out the highlights for yourself.
