McRae Updates Recruitment

Fred McRae is a shifty, 5'9'' receiver out of Hollywood, Florida. The young speedster played all over the field this season, and is dedicated to improving during the offseason.

"I feel I played good this season, I helped my team make the playoffs. I improved by getting bigger and faster and continue to get into the weight room. I had to step up and play both ways, along with special teams this season. I think that helped out my recruiting, because it shows I can play on both sides of the ball," he explained.

McRae averaged 13 yards a catch this season, but it wasn't just only on the offensive side of the ball that he put points up on the scoreboard. "I had 33 receptions for 440 yards and three touchdowns this fall. On defense I had three interceptions, one for a touchdown and a kick return for a touchdown too," McRae stated.

He's garnered offers from several schools, and continues to be in contact with many more. McRae remains wide open in the recruiting process, but is excited about all his offers.

"I've gotten offers from South Florida, Rutgers, Illinois, and Kansas. I'm hearing from Florida, Southern California, Texas Tech, Vanderbilt, Miami, Oregon, North Carolina State, and Ole Miss," he revealed.

He's taken a trip to Gainesville, but contends it didn't influence him so far. With more trips in the future expect the receiver to begin narrowing his list.

"I don't have a favorite right now, but I did take an unofficial visit to Florida when they played LSU. It was a good experience but it didn't impact my decision. I plan on committing sometime during the season, after sort everything out. I'm looking for academics first, and then playing time. The distance doesn't really matter, I'll go anywhere to play," he quoted. In between offseason workouts he's focused on becoming qualified with the NCAA.

"My grades are good and I take the ACT in a couple months, I still have to register for the SAT though," McRae stated.
