Recruiting: McKinney Returns From Arkansas

Putnam City North offensive lineman Myron McKinney was already back early Sunday afternoon from his official visit to the University of Arkansas. McKinney made a verbal commitment to Arkansas early in the fall, but has kept his options somewhat open through recruiting. He has now decided on one final visit to Oklahoma State and he spoke about his visit to the Razorbacks and where he is going with his recruitment the next couple of weeks.

"The visit went really well," McKinney said of his weekend trip to Fayetteville. "I was impressed with the facilities and how genuine the coaches and players were. It gave me a warm feeling. I also discovered how I would have a great opportunity to inlfuence young kids through AAO."

McKinney said AAO stands for Arkansas Athletes Outreach, a group that Arkansas has for its athletes to be involved with children in the community. McKinney said his host was current Arkansas offensive lineman and former Texas prep standout Tony Ugoh of Spring Westfield.

McKinney said he has juggled his final visit to Oklahoma State pushing it back a week so his mother can be involved in the visit and so he can take another run at the ACT. He has already passed the test, but wants to improve his score.

"I've decided not take any visit this weekend," said the 6-5, 300-pound McKinney. "I was scheduled to make a visit to Missouri, but I am not going to do that. I'm on the standby list for the ACT. I have a 21, but I can do better than that and I want to try for a higher score. I will make my visit to Oklahoma State on Dec. 16."

He added that the visit to Oklahoma State will wrap up his recruiting visits.
