McCay Talks Visit to Norman

Recruiting coverage at SoonersIllustrated is still going as we look to bring fans the latest in Oklahoma recruiting news. Today, we caught Oklahoma commit Justin McCay from Bishop Miege in Kansas at the airport after his official visit to Oklahoma. Check it out

Now that Bishop Miege (KS) athlete Justin McCay has finished up his official visit to Oklahoma and heading home, there were a few things that he wanted to point out.

For one, this weekend solidified (even more that a rock solid from before) his commitment to the Sooners, and also there were a few first for him from a recruiting standpoint.

"This was a great visit and I enjoyed it a lot. The atmosphere here was great," McCay said. "For me, this was the first game I have been to since I have committed."

Even more so, this is the first game for the 6-foot-4, 210-pound McCay. While he was excited to see his future team handle Texas A&M in a 65-10 route, McCay took in many other things as well.

"This was my first football game. And game day in Oklahoma is crazy," McCay said. "It was fun seeing everyone there and we all had fun."

When he is referring to everyone, he was talking about the many recruits who were in attendance. Plenty were there unofficially, but Roy Finch (commit), Kenny Stills, Chris Martin and Quentin Hayes (commit) were all official visitors who were on hand this weekend. 

As for the game, sure the atmosphere caught his attention, but much more took place. He saw how the Sooners look in a dominant fashion.

"This shows that things are only getting better. I mean we gained 640 yards of total offense," McCay said. "The quarterback (Landry Jones) threw for about 390 yards so I'd say it was a good day. I we have to do now is beat Texas Tech and Oklahoma State and we should be able to get a good bowl game."

Of course, the coaches are looking for McCay to play the wide receiver position when he gets on campus. With that said, he took a few notes from one of the Sooners' top targets on Saturday.

"Ryan Broyles had a great game. I like the way he uses his body to get separation from the defenders," McCay said of Oklahoma's top wide out who had eight catches for 80 yards and a touchdown. "He did a nice job of catching all game."

Now McCay is ready to get on that level of play. But, he and the Bishop Miege team are still holding tough and have a semifinal playoff game this upcoming week.

But that does not stop him from thinking about what he needs to get down prior to coming to Norman.

"I need to work hard and continue to work hard when I get there," McCay said. "I know that hard work pays off and that is what I will do to get on the field. I saw a lot this weekend and the entire experience was great.

"There is no doubt that Oklahoma is the place for me."
