Wide receiver Aiona Key misses practices

Boise State sophomore wide receiver Aiona Key has not practiced during the first two days of fall camp.

“He is in the process of trying to work some things out academically,” Boise State coach Chris Petersen said.

Key, who is 6-foot-4 and one of the team’s best overall athletes, showed improvement in the spring after two years of inconsistency on and off the field. He was among five wide receivers listed on the depth chart going into fall camp.

Key is one of just four Bronco receivers who are 6-foot-2 or taller. The others are converted safety Evan Surratt (6-2), converted tight end Julian Hawkins (6-3) and true freshman Austin Pettis (6-3).

Legedu Naanee and Jerard Rabb, who were senior standouts last year, each stood 6-2.
