Corey McKeon Names Official Visits

Corey McKeon's senior season ended in the second round of the Illinois state playoffs, allowing him to focus on his recruiting. McKeon has set the remainder of his official trips after visiting Purdue Oct. 20.

Corey McKeon's season didn't go exactly as planned, with Naperville North (Ill.) being bumped from the state playoffs in the second round, finishing with a 9-2 record.

"I was happy with our season, but at the same time disappointed with how we finished," McKeon said.

McKeon said after a slow start, trying to overcome teams keying specifically on him, he was able to adjust and play well.

"I had about a game drop, and after that I found ways to make myself more useful on the field," McKeon said. "After that, I pretty much started taking over games again."

Now the 6-2, 210-pound linebacker has been able to focus a little more on his recruiting, setting up visits to four more schools. McKeon made his first trip to Purdue Oct. 20, and will make official visits to Miami of Ohio (Dec. 6), Nebraska (Dec. 13), Illinois and Wisconsin.

The last two trips have not been set officially, but McKeon said the Badgers are his last visit.

McKeon said his trip to Purdue was a blast, and he would feel great if that's where he ends up going.

"I had a great time, I got to learn a lot, I got to meet the coaching staff and I'm comfortable with them," McKeon said. "I really like them a lot. There are other schools right there with them. It's just because I took my official visit already."

While the Badgers are scheduled as McKeon's final visit, there is no guarantee he won't make a decision before he arrives on campus, although McKeon has been to Madison several times already.

"It's a situational thing. If I get in there and I really like a school a lot, and I don't think it could get much better for myself, then I will commit," McKeon said. "If not, I will sit back and take a view and see what's going to happen."
