  • Selected to play in the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, McGee is starting his camp rounds after moving to Alabama from California just six days ago. First on the agenda was a camp at Mississippi State.

    "I liked the one-on-ones at the camp because I like getting after people," said McGee. "I also liked the coach (John Hevesy), he's a really tough guy. I actually have his DVD on how to pass-block."

    He learned quite a bit from Hevesy.

    "I learned that I need more hip flexibility, I need to work on my punch and my hand placement," said the youngster.

    One thing he felt was very unique about the MSU camp was that there were just a few campers at the camp. He really like that aspect of it.

    "I was expecting a lot of people to be at the camp but there weren't a lot of people here," said McGee. "I was expecting something like 500 people, but I was the only interior lineman at the camp. This was a good thing because I got a lot more reps."

    McGee has three more camps to attend the next couple of weeks.

    "This Saturday, I am going to Auburn's camp, then the following week I am going to Alabama's camp, then the following week after that I go to Florida State's camp," said the talented offensive lineman.

    As you would expect the camps he's attending are also the teams that are showing him the most recruiting attention.

    "Mississippi State is showing a lot of interest," said McGee. "I have tons of handwritten letters from them. Auburn and Alabama are jumping on the list, too. They are sending me a lot of letters. And Florida State is showing me a lot of interest, too. They are talking to my coach a lot."
