McGee Has Family Connections at South Florida

A 2015 defensive back from Miami received his fifth scholarship offer on Monday from the South Florida Bulls, where he has family connections.

Already possessing four offers as a junior from Akron, Florida International, Florida Atlantic and Central Florida, Miami Northwestern defensive back, Khalid McGee, picked up his fifth scholarship offer on Monday morning from the South Florida Bulls after receiving a visit at school from a very familiar face.

"They've (USF) been sending me a lot of mail for awhile," McGee said. "It's been a ton of handwritten letters and all. Today was just the day they decided to offer. Coach (Telly) Lockette (running backs) came to visit me today and asked me how my recruitment was going and said they loved my film."

With former Miami Central head coach, Telly Lockette, in charge of the recruiting duties in Miami Dade for the Bulls, McGee has became quite familiar with South Florida's running back coach over the years.

"Me and coach Lockette have a great relationship," McGee said. "I remember him growing up because I was going to go to school at Miami Central at one point. Yeah, we have a great relationship."

It's not just coach Lockette who McGee has a strong bond with for the Bulls. It happens to be that McGee's cousin plays for Willie Taggart, and playing alongside him in college would be a great experience.

"It's a big offer for me," McGee said. "I would love to go play with my cousin, Darius Tice. He plays running back for them. I would love to go play with him."

While the Bulls are the fifth school to extend a scholarship to the Miami Northwestern defensive back, McGee has a trio of others schools that have turned up the heat as of late.

"Louisville, Ole Miss and Florida State are showing interest," McGee said. "I'm looking forward to seeing if Florida State offers. They visited earlier this year."

Will distance be a factor for 5-foot-10, 180-pound cornerback?

"I would love to play instate."

McGee states that he currently has no leaders in his recruitment.
