"It was a great visit. I had a really good time," McKinney said after returning home. "What really stuck out to me was hanging out with the players, the other guys who have committed and also the Brazilian Steak House they took us to for dinner one night. That was really good."
McKinney's host was JoJo McIntosh and the two spent time getting to know each other while he also got the meet with Husky defensive backs coach Jimmy Lake and watch some film.
"We talked about how I fit into their scheme and where he projected me playing," McKinney noted. "He sees me as a free safety, but he said I could play as a rover safety too. A lot just depends on what they want to do and how I develop and what I show I can do when I get my chance to play."
As a senior this past season, McKinney finished with 78 tackles and three interceptions from his safety spot.
"I'm just excited to get up there and get things started," McKinney said. "We have a great group of guys coming in and I am really excited to sign and officially become a Husky."
We'll have more on McKinney once he signs his letter-of-intent on February 1st.
