McKinney: I got to meet Barry Richardson and Eric Coleman. My host was Justin Miller. That was good because we are from the same state.
How did the conversations go with the coaching staff?
McKinney: They went pretty good. I talked a good bit with Coach West. I also met with Coach Bowden. He talked about how they would utilize me on defense. He said I could play early.
What was your overall impression of Clemson?
McKinney: It was a good place. It was a good place to focus academically.
How would you rate the visit on a scale of 1 to 10?

How would you compare the visit with your Nebraska visit?
McKinney: They are two different atmospheres. They are both great football cities.
How would you compare the coaching staffs at Clemson and Nebraska?
