McGill off to a great start in 2010

Cerritos S Keith McGill (6-4, 214) possesses such outstanding physical skills, he had a handful of offers before the start of the 2010 season and decided to commit to Utah over the summer. Now, after three weeks, McGill is off to an outstanding start to the season and is considering the chance to visit a Pac 10 school and a Big 12 school during his bye week in October...

"Thing have been going great, especially on the field," McGill told JCFootball.com. "We're 2-0 and I have 9 tackles and 3 interceptions and we're playing well as a team and having fun."

In week one, McGill and his teammates downed L.A. Harbor 29-14 and then on Saturday they pummeled traditional-power Palomar, 34-17.

"We haven't really struggled yet, but I think the better teams are ahead of us on our schedule," McGill said. "I feel like we're still not playing as good as we can and we'll just keep getting better as we get challenged more and more."

On the recruiting front, McGill's ideal size, speed and athleticism to play the safety position led schools from across the country to extend an offer to him and he decided he couldn't pass up an offer from Utah. However, he's eying visits to two schools over his bye week in early October.

"I'm still committed to Utah, but I'm still going to take my official visits," McGill said. "I'm looking at visiting Washington State when they play Oregon and Kansas State when they play Nebraska.

"Kansas State plays Thursday and Washington State plays Saturday, so there's a chance I could do both, but at this point I'm only thinking about it. I haven't decided if I will do it yet or not.

"Depending on which school I decide to visit, I will most likely visit the other one later in the season or right after.

"I want to take my visits and see what else is out there, but I'm pretty happy with Utah and excited about their team and that they will be in the Pac 10 soon."

As a freshman last fall, McGill was a presence for the Falcons at free safety, posting over 30 tackles and five interceptions, taking back three for scores.

In the classroom, McGill is a solid student and is on pace to finish his AA degree in December with three years to play two wherever he ends up.
