Braxton Key, nephew of the NBA star Ralph Sampson, has committed to play for the Virginia Cavaliers. At 6 foot 8 inches, Key has averaged approximately 10 points per game, over his two seasons, while playing for the Crimson Tide.
Since Key is a sophomore, he will have two years of eligibility remaining with the Cavalier’s after sitting out the 2018-2019 season due to NCAA transfer rules.
Only a few days ago, Key was visiting the University of Miami. However, in an interview with ESPN, he stated, “I chose Virginia because of the relationship with the coaches since high school. I love how close the team is, and it’s my uncle Ralph Sampson’s alma mater. I’ll miss the Crimson Tide, but I’m so grateful for this next chapter.”
