The latest with McKenzie
Athlete Isaiah McKenzie of Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage had been teetering on making a possible decision within the next couple of weeks. However, McKenzie has decided to dial things back. "I'm not deciding any time soon," McKenzie said. "I will decide sometime in October. I've only seen Notre Dame in my top five. I would like to take officials to all the schools in my top five." In fact, McKenzie will be returning to Notre Dame in October when the Irish take on USC. "I have an official visit to Notre Dame scheduled," McKenzie said. "I'm going up there for the USC game. That's the only official I have scheduled so far." McKenzie's top five consists of Cincinnati, Kentucky, Notre Dame, Rutgers and West Virginia, but one stands above the rest. "Notre Dame is still my leader," McKenzie said. Notre Dame requires that students complete two years (four semesters) of foreign language in high school. There had been questions circulating regarding McKenzie's foreign language credits, but the athlete set the record straight. "I have already taken two full years of Spanish," McKenzie said. "That is not an issue." American Heritage started practice in preparation for the 2013 season last week, and Monday, the talented Florida squad will have their first day in pads. "We have a great team this year," McKenzie said. "I don't think anyone is stopping us. We have some tough games on our schedule, but I think we're ready." "I want to get faster," McKenzie said. "I can run the 40 in 4.42. I want to be able to run it in 4.25 by the end of the season."
