McCay Ready to Get to Work for Sooners

Recruiting coverage at Sooner Illustrated 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 after the US Army All American game.

Bishop Miege (KS) wide receiver Justin McCay has spent the last week participating in the US Army All American game and all of the events that go along with it. On Saturday, the kickoff for East versus West took place and McCay was one of the receivers in rotation for the West squad.

"Very proud to be here and proud of the outcome too. The game went well," McCay said of the 29-14 win over the East team. "Everybody plays in all star games and I think that we all stepped up to the challenge and did good."

For the 6-foot-3, 200-pound McCay, only one pass was caught on the day for a 9-yard gain. But with this experience playing with the nation's elite, McCay will not only end his high school with a bang, but also get a small taste of what level of athletes are on the college level.

"I think that what I learned here will carry over because the competition here is closer to what I will see in college," McCay said. "Not quite as strong, but when you get to college it's a lot of competition so you have to come to work everyday."

Throughout Sooners Illustrated updates on McCay, one consistent statement he speaks of is hard work and the commitment to getting better. In this game, McCay admitted that the speed of the game was no faster than games he has played in before, but the secondary players are much quicker.

"These guys are the best at their position," McCay said. "But when I get to Oklahoma, I am looking forward to working hard and coming in from Day 1 giving 100 percent. I think that I can come in and make plays. And when you believe, God will make a way for it to happen. I will have to bring my ‘A' game everyday when I get to Norman. 

"You have to be dedicated to the game. Because if you slip up, somebody will take your spot and you'll be on the bench. I am not looking for that to happen to me. I'll give it everything I can."
