Dudley (Mass.) Shepherd Hill tight end Sean McKeon is one of the top players at his position in the northeast. He had a busy weekend over the past few days as he visited Syracuse on Friday, participated in a 7-on-7 event on Saturday and visited Pittsburgh on Sunday.
The three-star talent started the jam-packed weekend with the trip to Syracuse.
”It was my first time on campus,” McKeon said. “I toured all of their football facilities. I saw their meeting room, weight room, I saw Manley Field House, the stadium (Carrier Dome), the practice field and I got a little tour of the campus too. It was great.”
In addition to seeing the facilities and the school, McKeon spent a significant amount of time speaking with the Orange coaches.
”I met with the tight end coach, coach Moreland,” McKeon said. “The d-line coach, coach Daoust. We just talked about positional work and what I would do on offense or defense. I met with coach Shafer at the end.
”We were just getting to know each other and establishing a relationship.”
McKeon had both of his parents with him on the trip and all three really enjoyed their experience.
”I thought it was great,” he said. “I loved it. I love the campus. I love all of the facilities. The coaches were really nice and friendly. It was great.”
The visit was important for McKeon, who wanted to get a better feel for the program. It allowed him to see a different side of Syracuse and understand how he would fit should he choose the Orange.
The trip pushed Syracuse up his list.
”I have them really high on my list,” McKeon said. “They’re probably one of my top schools right now.”
In addition to Syracuse on Friday, he hit up Pittsburgh on Sunday for a one day camp. The Panthers are another school he is high on and he enjoyed his time on their campus.
”The Pitt camp was good,” McKeon said. “Got some tight end work in and worked with the tight end coach. Kind of did a little tour at the end. I saw the campus and talked with the new head coach.
”Pitt’s probably one of my top schools as well.”
There is currently no order for McKeon’s top schools, but it does consist of four.
”My top schools are B.C., Syracuse, Pitt and Virginia,” he said.
McKeon is planning to make a decision by the end of June. He hopes to visit Virginia before that point, as it is the only one of his top schools that he is yet to see.
