McKay Starting to feel at Home

Wide receiver MeKale McKay is now starting to feel comfortable on and off the field at Cincinnati.

After transferring from the University of Arkansas, receiver MeKale McKay made a great impact on the team last season for the Bearcats. He racked up 485 yards and caught seven touchdowns last season and looks to improve on those numbers whether Gunner Kiel or Jarred Evans is the starting quarterback come week one.

Before transferring to the University of Cincinnati, in Arkansas, McKay played in all 12 games and made 10 starts, collecting 21 catches for 317 yards and two touchdowns. His receiving yards were second on the team, and he tied for fourth on the team in catches and touchdown receptions.

Insider caught up with McKay after Saturday's practice, the first practice of the season with the pads on and McKay seemed refreshed and hyped up to go for the season.

"Everyone was excited to get the pads on and all the guys came out fiery today. I mean you could tell from the reaction of players during drills that this was such an exciting moment. It's a great feeling," McKay said.

When asked if he feels more comfortable in the offense that Tommy Tuberville is running through his Spread Offense, McKay talked about continuity.

"It has definitely gotten easier for me to get into the rhythm of the offense. But it may sound cliché but it's all about repetition. Just keep working and working at it and good things will happen and that's the message coach preached to us."
