4-star DB Brandon McKinney Planning Summer Visit

June 16 -- Orange (Calif.) Lutheran four-star safety Brandon McKinney is planning to get up to UCLA for an unofficial visit this summer...

Orange (Calif.) Lutheran safety Brandon McKinney (6-1, 190) has nine offers and plans to visit a couple of the schools who've offered this summer.


"Some of the offers standing out to me are USCUCLAWashingtonColorado and Arizona State," said McKinney.  "I'm still pretty wide open and I don't even have a top five right now."

But McKinney did acknowledge that one school is recruiting him the hardest.

"I'd say Washington," said McKinney.  "Coach (Chris) Petersen is recruiting me but I talk with Coach (Jimmy) Lake all the time.  Plus (UW commit) Terrell Bynum is recruiting me there too."

McKinney visited Washington last November when the Huskies hosted Utah and he's planning a return trip.

"I'm going to Washington again sometime this month or next month," said McKinney.

This weekend, he'll visit another Pac-12 school.

"I'm going to Colorado this Saturday," said McKinney.

McKinney visited USC during the spring and plans to get up to UCLA this summer.

"I got to visit USC during the spring and I'm going to get up to UCLA, even though it's local, and talk with the coaches up there," said McKinney.

A few other schools are showing interest in McKinney and could offer soon.

"I've been talking with Notre DameOregonOregon State and Washington State," said McKinney.  "Washington State actually likes me as a receiver."

McKinney, though, said everyone else is recruiting him as a safety.

The four-star doesn't know when he'll make his decision.

"It could be soon or it could be however long it takes, whenever I feel like it's the time to do it," said McKinney.
