Ranking the Most Important on Offense: No. 21

Sooners Illustrated now presents the fifth day of the countdown of most crucial offensive players with a skill player at No. 21 (a.)

No. 21 (a.):

Player: Justin McCay

Position: Backup wide receiver

The rundown: McCay was making great strides in the spring before suffering a sprained MCL. That sidelined him for the Spring Game, but the bright spot was the fact that he didn't need surgery to repair it. So, the 6-foot-2, 209-pound receiver who redshirted in 2010 should be healthy come fall.

Expectations for 2011: McCay will battle for playing time. On the most recent depth chart, which was released three weeks before the Spring Game, he was listed as a reserve behind Kenny Stills. But receivers coach Jay Norvell likes to have a group that runs five to eight solid receivers deep, and all signs are that this group is talented enough to do so. That means if McCay has a good camp, he could play a bigger role than expected just by looking at the depth chart.

Jump on into Sooner Magic Insider for discussion about the list.


No. 25: David Driskill

No. 24: Adam Shead

No. 23: Daryl Williams

No. 22: Austin Woods

No. 21 (b.): Sheldon McClain
