“The recruiting process is going very good and I got a couple schools standing out to me,” McGee told BadgerNation. “They are Louisville, Wisconsin South Florida and Cincinnati. They are just schools standing out and not a top list.”
The main reason for the Badgers sticking out to the 5-10,1 80-pound ballhawk safety is wide receiver coach Chris Beatty having heavily recruited him since McGee was frustrating quarterbacks in 10th grade.
“I have a great relationship with Coach Beatty,” said McGee. “He is a great guy and is like a father figure to me. I have known him for a very long time. He talks to me about everything. He says if I go to Wisconsin that I have a shot to start. That is one thing that he tells me is playing early and academics. He says that academics are very good and have a good academic school.”
McGee has yet to visit Wisconsin but says he will “probably” take an official visit to Madison in the fall. Wisconsin is the only school McGee knows of that he will probably take an official to.
Rated a three-star prospect, McGee camped at Georgia and South Florida over the summer, doing well enough in Athens that he could earn a scholarship from the Bulldogs.
“I have very strong interest in Georgia,” he said. “I think I should have a offer coming soon.”
