US Army All-American Game Evaluation-WR Justin McCay
Commitment: Oklahoma 

Strengths
Let's start with the obvious, McCay is 6-foot-3 and weighs 200 pounds so he already has a good, lean size on him. With the strength and conditioning he will receive at Oklahoma, look for McCay to be a solid 225 pounds Sooner than later. 

He had only one catch for nine yards on the day, but he broke two tackles before going down. He is tough to take down, especially in the open field where he could be dangerous. Which brings up the next point, speed.

McCay has deceptive speed with a long stride. This allows him to get on the defenders heels in a hurry. On one occasion, he was in the defensive back's hip after six yards. 

Weakness
And really this is not so much a flaw, but McCay is raw at the wide receiver position. He does not run the good, crisp routes that some other guys on his talent level do. But he'll get with assistant coach Jay Norvell and get that worked out. Plenty of upside though.

Also, he could work on getting off the jams a little better. 

Quote from McCay: "I think that what I learned here will carry over because the competition here is closer to what I will see in college. These guys are the best at their position so 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."
