Casa Grande RB Keys narrows choice to Yale or UNLV

Posted by Staff Writer Eric Branch:
Casa Grande running back Kahlil Keys has narrowed his college choices to Yale and UNLV.
Keys, who has a 4.0 GPA and is an accomplished public speaker, has taken official visits to both schools and intends to make a decision before Wednesday, National Signing Day.
Casa Grande coach Trent Herzog said Keys has been offered a full academic scholarship from Yale and a full athletic scholarship from UNLV.
Keys, a 5-foot-11, 200-pounder, rushed for 1,246 yards and 16 touchdowns to earn Back-of-the-Year honors in the Sonoma County League.
Now, just as an aside, Yale or UNLV? New Haven, Conn., or Sin City? The Ivy League or the Mountain West Conference? Put it this way: Five U.S. presidents and 19 U.S. Supreme Court justices have graduated from Yale.
And Ickey Woods has graduated from UNLV.
I’m not making fun — it’s a testament to Keys’ athleticism and intellect that he has a such a unique choice.
It’s just that we’re used to hearing about Empire athletes choosing between Sacramento State and Humboldt State.
Yale and UNLV? I’d never heard that one before.
