McGee achieves goal in Tuscaloosa

Shaun McGee traveled to Tuscaloosa with a goal in mind and he did not leave before achieving that goal.

"I went to Alabama for their camp wanting an offer and I got it today," Shaun McGee told Scout as he left Tuscaloosa. "I talked to Coach Nick Saban and Coach Kirby Smart before I left and both told me I have an offer from them."

The offer means a lot to the 6-foot-3, 235 pound prospect out of Snellville (Ga.) Brookwood.

"It is not all about the school itself, but because I came here set on getting the offer. This was a business trip for me and I accomplished what I wanted to accomplish."

McGee has over 20 scholarship offers and the Tide have moved up to the top.

"They have to be high on my list and I would put them at the top now," he said. "They have a great campus, great facilities, I enjoyed hanging around the players today, and the coaches are great. I really like the overall environment there."

Although UA is at the top of his list, McGee is not ready to pull the trigger yet.

"I am not in a rush to make a decision. I am going to Florida next week with the same goal in mind. I plan to commit late in the summer, but I am not that close right now."

Alabama has put themselves into position to be a strong contender though.

"Coach Saban and Coach Smart both told me that they want me at Alabama, so that stood out to me. They have a great program and they win a lot there.

"They want me as an inside linebacker, so that is different from what I am used to playing, but they feel I could be very good there for them."

Stay tuned to Scout for the latest on the no. 50 defensive end in the country.
