McGary Ready To Take Visits

Tacoma (Wash.) Fife offensive tackle Kaleb McGary is preparing for a busy winter filled with official visits.

Uncommitted offensive tackle prospect Kaleb McGary had high hopes for his Fife squad coming into his senior season. But, a slew of losses has left them out of playoff contention heading into the season finale next week.

"The season ended pretty disappointingly," McGary said. "We had all the pieces we needed to make it big and I guess we just couldn't get things to fall in to place just right."

Next week's game means it will be the last time McGary plays a football game for Fife, something he was hoping wouldn't have come so soon.

"It sucks honestly," McGary said. "It's the last time I'm going to play a football game with a helmet and pads on with some of the guys I've played football with for a while now."

McGary said he wants to enjoy the last week he has with his teammates and hopes to go out on a high note. An early end to the season means that McGary will turn his attention to visits, which will coincide with his basketball season.

"I'm going to be a busy bee," McGary said. "So far I'm going to take a visit to Washington, Oregon State, Oregon and Boise State. I'm kind of swinging between Wisconsin and USC for that last visit spot."

No dates have been set, but McGary knows it will take a lot of time management and patience to get through his upcoming schedule.

"Really, I just don't to think about it because it's just daunting," McGary said. "But I think I can handle it."

On Friday night, McGary said he received a call from an Oregon coach but was in no mood to talk following Fife's loss. He said he hears from them regularly, but has no favorite as of right now between the schools he is considering because he hasn't gotten a chance to take his visits.

"It's between that top five or six at this point," McGary said. "I'm kind of flying by the seat of my pants a little bit because I want to go everywhere and see everything before I decide."
