McKinney boasts excellent 4.5 speed in the forty along a 32 inch vertical leap and is excellent in run support. "I am very aggressive and I like to come up and make plays in the run game, this summer I'm going to really focus on my speed and improving my cover skills," replied McKinney when asked about his strengths and weaknesses.
Currently Kansas leads in the race to land the defensive back from the CenTex, but Vanderbilt, Duke, Texas Tech, Nebraska, SMU and Houston are also in the mix for McKinney's services. Dion who has already attended Junior Day at Texas Tech plans on also attending SMU's Junior Day along with a camp at LSU this summer.
"Campus atmosphere will be key for me, I want to go to a school where I comfortable with the setting," said McKinney who also mentioned academics as playing a key role in his decision. That decision will likely be made by the Leander DB before the start of the 2008 season as Dion has big plans for 2008. "I want to win district first and then I want to hopefully help us go on a long playoff run all the way to state."
