McKie Returns From Trips; Could Decide Soon

Travis McKie is getting close to a decision. He recently took a pair of visits to ACC schools and he broke down each to Scout.com.

Travis McKie heard the whispers last week. Rumors circulated that he was closing in on a decision. In reality, the 6-foot-5 wing is close, but not quite ready.

"I'm probably going to try and cut it down," McKie told Scout.com. "I'm going to try and get it down to three. People think I'm going to commit soon."

"I don't know [why people think that]," he continued. "I think it' because I went to Clemson and then I went to Wake again. A lot of people thought I was going to commit to Wake."

The schools McKie is hearing from the most are Virginia, Virginia Tech, Clemson, Wake Forest, Florida and UNC. The Gators and Tar Heels are the only two that haven't offered him a scholarship.

"I'm not in a hurry, but I need to narrow my list down and make a decision soon because that's how the recruiting process goes," the four-star prospect said. "You can't wait too long."

Over the past few weeks, McKie has taken a pair of unofficial visits. He took a trip to Clemson first and came away with the impression that he was one of the Tigers top prospectw in 2010.

"The Clemson visit went real well," McKie said. "They told me I could play major minutes as a freshman. They said I'm one of their top priorities and the campus was real nice."

Then McKie visited Wake Forest last week for their game against Big Ten foe Indiana.

"Wake Forest had an amazing atmosphere," he said. "The crowd was hyped. They get up an down. There were a lot of turnovers, but the visit went real well. They also said I'm a main priority."

Of the schools on his list Florida is the only one that the Richmond (Va.) John Marshall product has not visited. Although he doesn't have a visit planned, he'd like to make a visit to Gainesville (Fla.) in the near future.

With his recruitment in full gear, McKie, the 6th ranked wing in 2010, also has his high school season to worry about. His first game of the season went well, as he scored 24 points in a 94-50 win over Patrick Henry.
