It's not too often that you have a sophomore that's considered to be one of the best kickers in the nation. However, it's not too far-fetched to put Class of 2019 Pennsylvania kicker Kolton McGhee in that conversation. The evidence? Power 5 schools such as Penn State, Notre Dame and Rutgers have began to show serious interest in McGhee. McGhee talked to Scout Penn Preps about Penn State and his upcoming plans.
ON PENN STATE:
"It was a great experience (the visit to Penn State). To start the day off, I was greeted by the entire coaching staff once I entered the facility. I got a tour of the Lasch Facility and the campus. I met with the head strength and conditioning coach and the academic advisor. I also sat in on a team meeting and I finished the day with a meeting with Head Coach (James) Franklin, Coach Huff and Coach Williams). I was very encouraged by the feedback I received from all of the coaches. They said I'm definitely their guy and that it's just a matter of time until I receive that offer."
That wasn't all McGhee had to say about the visit. Here's more:
"The (Penn State) program is very well organized and definitely run by the right people. I was able to spend the day with Coach Williams and Coach Goodman. We built a relationship that's going to be very important to this recruiting process."
OTHER SCHOOLS SHOWING INTEREST
McGhee recently visited West Virginia last week and visited East Carolina on Apr. 1. McGhee has plans to visit Rutgers and Notre Dame Fighting Irish next weekend.
