2015 Columbus (OH) Walnut Ridge linebacker Anthony McKee is one of the top prospects for his class in the state of Ohio. He has good closing speed and has a nose for the ball.
Standing at 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, McKee could be used as an outside linebacker in college or a hybrid player that could also see time in the secondary.
He took in his second Ohio State game of the season this weekend.
"The visit to Ohio State was something else," McKee said. "The ‘Shoe was nuts. I talked to a lot of people about the school while I was there. I talked to other recruits in my class, the commits, the players, and the coaches. It was the best game I've been to so far. I had a blast."
"I got to meet Braxton Miller and a few other really cool players," he added. "I talked to Coach (Luke) Fickell a lot. Braxton is real cool to talk to. He is very laid back and humble, which is the way to be. Coach Fickell is a stand up guy. Everyone likes him and he's cool and easy to talk to."
McKee has yet to earn an offer from Ohio State but they have been in constant contact with him. An offer may come but for now McKee is not concerned and is only focused on getting better.
"Patience is the key for me," he explained. "Schools get my film after every game and they talk to me about it. I know I have offers from great programs already and I am going to keep playing and working hard like I'm still trying to get offered. I'm not going to stop working hard. I'm always going to put forth everything I have in every game."
McKee's next visit will be to Michigan State.
