One Tennessee high school quarterback is doing his best to get noticed this spring and summer.

That shouldn't be a huge endeavor, especially with the numbers that Kody McKinley put up for his McGavock High School Football team last fall.

McKinley threw for over 1,800 yards and 17 touchdowns, leading his team to a 6-4 season and a playoff appearance.

McKinley participated in the In Full Motion Exposure Camp at Father Ryan High School in Nashville and turned in some impressive numbers with a 4.8 40 and 34.5-inch vertical.

"It was a good combine, I was happy with my performance," McKinley told InsideTennessee.com.

So far McKinley hasn't received an official offer but has been receiving interest from Memphis, Western Kentucky, Middle Tennessee State, Vanderbilt and a little from the University of Tennessee.

"I hope Tennessee starts showing a little more interest in the future," McKinley said. "Clemson is another school I'm hoping to hear from."

When asked if he grew up a Tennessee fan, McKinley gave an understandable answer.

"I'm originally from Clemson, that's where I grew up, so I grew up a big Tiger fan," McKinley said. "I like Tennessee a lot. I have enjoyed following them the last few seasons."

McKinley earned All-Metro and All Region honors and also has been named Pre-season Top Class 6A returning player of the year.

According to McKinley, things are looking bright for McGavock this fall.

"We only lost two starters from last year," McKinley said. "We are all excited about the upcoming season. We are expecting great things."

McKinley may also attend summer camp at Tennessee in hopes of catching the eyes of Derek Dooley and coaching staff.

"I'm looking for the school I can get the most playing time," McKinley said. "Second of all I want to get a great education. I also want to feel at home and be comfortable in my surroundings."
