McKinley Talks Explosive Game, New Offer
CORONA, Calif. -- In a game with 15 lead changes and a final tally of 68-64, it wasn’t easy to stand out, but against Gardena (Calif.) Serra, Corona (Calif.) Centennial 2016 wide receiver Javon McKinley did, and he picked up another major offer on the same day.
California extended a scholarship offer to McKinley – his sixth, after UCLA, Colorado, Arizona State, Northwestern and Washington – on the same day that he caught 13 passes for 213 yards and four touchdowns and ran back a kickoff 84 yards for another touchdown.
“I just got offered,” said the 6-foot-2, 185-pound McKinley. “I’m going to look more into that school.”
McKinley has made unofficial trips to Washington, UCLA and USC so far.
Cal outside receivers coach Rob Likens was in attendance on Friday, as was Centennial alum and current Golden Bears running back Tre Watson, to watch the first-round Pac-5 playoff match-up.
McKinley caught touchdown passes of 54 and 21 yards from Anthony Catalano, and a 22-yarder and a 53-yarder from Nate Ketteringham.
Of course, offensive shootouts are nothing new for McKinley.
“Last year, against Upland and King, we had shootouts, there, too,” McKinley said. “Last year, we scored 86 against Upland, and we set the national record for total yards in a game with nine hundred and something. Being tied is a regular thing at Centennial.”
The Cal offense is certainly a fast-paced, high-scoring affair when it gets going on all cylinders, which makes McKinley very interested in the Bears, and playing in the Bear Raid.
“Oh yeah, that’s my type of offense, right there,” McKinley said.
