"Yes, Nebraska is out of it for me," McCay said. "I went up there last year for an unofficial visit. I didn't get a chance to get back up there this spring."
McCay made a trip to Lincoln last year and came back with positive remarks immediately following the trip about Lincoln and the recruiting coach. Somewhere along the way though, something changed.
"I didn't feel like the fit was there for me. I had really been meaning to trim down my list for a long time and so I had to start somewhere."
McCay is a polished player with huge upside who was being recruited to play wide receiver at Nebraska. However, McCay is the #1 rated outside linebacker by Scout.com.
"I try to always run good routes and be precise. The coaches all tell me they like my explosiveness, speed are a big part of my game. I just want to be a complete wide receiver."
As last as November it seemed that McCay would stay in the area with a Big 12 team stating that he was leaning more towards teams like ‘Kansas, Nebraska, K-state, Texas Tech. I like the teams in that area.' However, only a couple of those teams now remain on his list.
Don't expect those not on his list to stop recruiting McCay either. McCay is a special talent that could play on either side of the ball and has the athletic tools and gifts to be as good as he wants to be at the next level.
