McKinzy, who already has scholarship,offers from Minnesota, Iowa and Nebraska, worked with various Gopher coaches during camp but particularly liked working with Minnesota quarterback coach Jim Zebrowski.
"To work with Coach Z was pretty exciting because he is the type of coach I could relate to," he explained.
In addition to competing at the camp, the 6-foot, 180-pound McKinzy spent time with the Gopher coaches learning about the Minnesota program and discussing how he would fit into the offense as a quarterback.
"I spent time talking to Coach Z, Coach Kill, and the running back coach," he said. "They were showing me how they run their offense. They like how flexible I can be with the option and the passing game and also the running game."
The talented signal-caller from Kansas City (Mo.) finished his sophomore season completing 82-of-123 (66.6%) passes for over 1,400 yards and 18 touchdowns.
