Scouting Report: 

McKinley III transferred from a private school to play against Texas 6A competition as a junior in 2016, and he had a solid season against a higher level of competition. He should be considered as a cover corner and shows the ability to help limit plays on his side of the football field, despite the fact many times the receiver lining up opposite of him has the size advantage. He closes the distance quickly and shows the ability to make a big hit. 

He earned First Team 5-6A All-District honors as a junior in 2016.
