Recruiting: Myron McKinney Still Looking

Putnam City North offensive lineman Myron McKinney is a multi-talented young man who makes good grades, can sing more than a little, and will move one side of a defensive line. McKinney verbally committed to Arkansas late in the summer, but he has been seen taking in college games in his home state at OSU and OU. We asked McKinney what his situation is at the current time.

"I'm still committed to Arkansas, but having a good time in going through the recruiting process plays a role in my thinking," said the 6-4, 300-pounder. "I'm enjoying going to college games in my home state especially since I've never been to any college games.

"The thought of staying in state is still lingering with me," he said. "I'm always thinking that I would like to be close to my mom and then I also have some family in Little Rock (Ark.), so there are pros and cons to it. A lot of it is pending on if OU comes through with an offer. That would be hard to pass up since they already have a commitment from my best friend Sam Bradford (Putnam City North quarterback) and I've always been a Sooner fan. I think Oklahoma is really the one school that would be hard for me to pass up."

McKinney said he is also still intrigued by Missouri and he also said Oklahoma State has its advantage besides being in-state.

"Oklahoma State is pretty tempting, too," McKinney said. "I'm very active in FCA and I have some connections there through FCA and it is close by."

McKinney added that he has been honest and up front with the Arkansas coaches about his excursions on Saturdays. McKinney and his Putnam City North teammates were upset 28-24 last week by Edmond Santa Fe. But the Panthers start district play this week as the favorite to win their district and advance deep into the Oklahoma 6A playoffs.
