Still, he wanted an offer from the in-state Bulldogs. After his performance in Sanford Stadium, defensive coordinator Todd Grantham told McGee to visit with Mark Richt. The head coach had a message to deliver.
"My goal going into the Georgia camp was to get a scholarship offer," McGee said. "I went and competed and I knew what I could do so I expected nothing less."
Richt informed McGee he had an offer to play for the Bulldogs, both as an inside and outside linebacker.
The 6-3, 233-pound McGee was pleased with Georgia's decision to further pursue him.
"The Georgia offer was a big one to me," he said. "I went and talked to coach Richt once the camp was over, and he loved the way that I competed."
Although Georgia was later than most in offering McGee, the Bulldogs are now firmly in his Top Three.
"Georgia is definitely in my top group of schools," he said. "My top three right now would be Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina.
"What I like most about Georgia are the coaches, the fact that they are Christian men and how they care about their players."
Now McGee's focus is to end his recruitment as soon as possible.
"I'm planning to commit sometime in the next week or so," he said. "I've got all the offers that I need, and I want to focus on my senior season. I want to get my commitment out of the way."
