Top OC McGee taking things slow

The heart of Big 12 country is home to's #2 rated center prospect John McGee. The 6 foot 3 and a half, 260 pound road grader out of Texarkana High School in Texas has offers from all over the country. One offer the Texas native doesn't have is from his home state Longhorns, a huge benefit to other school's looking to improve the interior of their line - including Michigan.

"I'd have to say Missouri is on me the hardest right now," John McGee told GoBlueWolverine. "Stanford came by (his school) the other day, but the hardest recruiting right now is Missouri."

With college coaches on the road visiting high school's during the spring evaluation period McGee says plenty of school's will be stopping by next week, including Michigan.

"I talk to Coach Funk on the phone. We talk a lot on the phone and stay in contact. I believe they said they're coming down next week -- a lot of school's are coming next week."

Although McGee is from the state of Texas, he says location won't play a huge role in his decision making process.

"I'm not worried too much about leaving the state but I want to be able to get back home to the family. Location plays a part, but it's not really that big of a factor unless they're just really far out."

Despite such heavy interest from across the nation McGee know's who his top two schools are at this moment.

"My leaders right now are Oklahoma and Missouri. After that it kind of levels off."

 While McGee already has two school's sticking out he's in no hurry to make a decision on his college destination.

"I'm thinking after the season. I was going to make my decision during the summer but I'm moving it back to after the season so I can take a few visits."

With McGee putting off his decision this will give school's a chance to crack his top two with hopes of hosting the four-star prospect for an official visit in the fall. Stay tuned to to find out when the Wolverine's will be in McGee's school.
