A New Top Three After A New Offer

He is one of the finest athletes in the state of Georgia and he just received his latest offer from a rather unusual coach - and then he updated his top three for all the right reasons ...

Kenny McKinley Profile

Kenny McKinley, an athletic quarterback, is putting up amazing numbers this season. He had a great night, stat wise, on the field this past Friday, but he also received another offer before the game. An SEC Coach came by and offered McKinley and then Mr. McKinley turned around and visited this school over the weekend. Who is the new offer from and who are in McKinley's top three?

"Coach Oliver ( South Carolina) came by the school Friday and they offered me," said Kenny McKinley.

"South Carolina is offer number thirteen for me."

"Coach Oliver stayed and watched me play against Harrison, but we lost 35-27. I had a little over 400 yards total offense, though. I had 257 yards passing for two touchdowns and then had 151 yards rushing for two touchdowns. I broke a 77 yard touchdown run on the third play of the game."

McKinley went up Saturday to check out South Carolina as they battled Georgia down to the wire. What did he see and how did he like Columbia?

"I had a great time…I got to walk on the field before the game, see all the facilities and talk to the coaches. The trip was great overall."

Has the new offer and visit put the Gamecocks in the lead?

"I wouldn't say the lead, but they are now in my top three. South Carolina, Tennessee and North Carolina are my favorites right now. I know I will visit those three for sure. The other two visits are up in the air at this point. Georgia is coming to see me play this Friday and they will get back in my favorites if they decide to offer."

What does McKinley like about his top three?

South Carolina: Environment, fans, good players and programs potential

Tennessee: Great to play for a prestigious program and they win year in and year out

North Carolina: Like their staff and the ability to play early there

Where will this top GA athlete be this Saturday?

"I'll be in Knoxville for the Tennessee / Florida game. I am really looking forward to that."

McKinley is a great athlete that is having a great year on the field. Odds are he won't play quarterback on the college level, but someone is going to get a great athlete.
