McCay Remains Focused on Recruitment

While his preseason practices have just began, five-star linebacker Justin McCay's recruitment continues at full throttle. McCay talks about some favorites and a team he is no longer considering.

MADISON - For many prospects, recruiting may have its ups and downs. There may be times when a prospect gets a lot of attention and then barely hears anything. For Justin McCay, that hasn't been the case.

The 6-foot 3, 200 pound athlete from Bishop Miege HS in Kansas has been recruited as both a wide receiver and linebacker at the next level, but is rated as the eighth-best player in the nation and the top outside linebacker by

With some of the top schools in the country offering McCay a scholarship, he has been taking his time to narrow the field. He seems to have come up with two favorites. "Oklahoma and Florida are the top 2 recruiting wise," McCay told Badger Nation Wednesday.

While Florida and Oklahoma lead for his signature, Wisconsin was one of his first offers, but they are no longer in the picture.

"I don't think they are in the running anymore to be honest," McCay said. "I haven't talked to them in a while. They stopped recruiting me. They stopped recruiting me when the big recruitment came to me I guess."

While McCay is unsure of where he will be taking his official visits, Florida and Oklahoma are most likely going to be receiving an official visit from McCay this fall.

So when will one of the country's best prospects make his final decision?

"Maybe (after the season)," McCay explained. "It depends, I'm not really sure when I am going to make a decision."
