It was another big season for Husky wide out Javon McKinley. He finished the regular season with 46 catches for 1,013 yards and 11 touchdowns plus two more scores on kick off returns, all despite rarely playing in to the second half this season.
McKinley has taken official visits to Notre Dame, Oregon, Tennessee and Washington and has his final trip scheduled for (Dec. 12) to UCLA. Over the next few weeks, he'll have all of those schools coming in for home visits as well.
Notre Dame will be first in the McKinley home, coming in later today. Oregon will be in on Thursday and Washington is still finalizing a date but it looks like it will late next week (Dec. 10).
Both UCLA and Washington will be in attendance at McKinley's game against St. John Bosco this coming Saturday, in what is arguably the biggest game of the year, anywhere in the country. Both teams are 13-0 and ranked in the top 5 nationally in every poll.
Since colleges are only allowed one contact a week at this time and attending the game will count as a contact, the Bruins and Huskies will both try and get in the home next week. McKinley is still set to make his college choice at the Army AA Game on January 9 and at this point, it looks like a wide open race.
Notre Dame and Washington are the two schools that have been recruiting McKinley hardest from day one. He has visted both schools multiple times and is very close to the coaching staffs at both programs.
McKinley's recent visit to Oregon was an eye opener for him and he has always raved about the offense and how similar it is to what they run at Centennial. UCLA is the local favorite, has made up a lot of ground since the spring and the receiver has commented about how nice it would be to catch passes from Josh Rosen for a couple of years.
