McCay doing it on O and D

Recruiting coverage at SoonersIllustrated is still going as we look to bring fans the latest in Oklahoma recruiting news. Today, we spoke with athlete and Oklahoma commit Justin McCay from Bishop Miege in Kansas.

Just a little over a month has passed since Bishop Miege (KS) athlete Justin McCay made his commitment to Oklahoma. Now as he gears up for his third game of the season, has anything changed?

"When I committed to Oklahoma I knew it was the right thing to do," McCay said. "In fact, my feelings are getting stronger as time goes on. I am comfortable with the school and I am going to stick with my decision."

And while McCay remains committed, it seems as though the coaches are staying close as well. Aside from solid communication between the two, 6-foot-4, 205-pound McCay has a good relationship with the coaching staff.

"Coach (Jay) Norvell was at my game this past Friday. He (Norvell) and the (Oklahoma) basketball coach was there looking at me and one of my teammates," McCay said. "Things are going pretty well for me this season. We won our first game, but lost our second. "

For the Bishop Miege team, McCay is playing both linebacker and wide receiver. It seems as though he has been excelling at both. Offensively he already has two touchdowns on the year and on defense has close to 30 tackles in two games.

Of course when he gets to Norman, it will be all offense.

"Coach Norvell is looking for me to come and work hard for a position. They want me to play wide receiver," McCay said.

McCay has already seen the sights of Oklahoma campus, but is looking to get down for his official visit. 

"I talked to the coaches about taking my official visit on the October 10, but I am not for certain about that," McCay said. "I may be taking the ACT test that day."

He said that he is trying to set his visit with a couple of players, Blake Bell and Brennan Clay are two whom he mentioned.
