Hey BBN! I'm Charles Doss from the SB Nation Ohio State site LandGrantHolyLand.Com. Hope you guys don't mind but I have a quick story to share. Thanks!
Columbus, Ohio native and four star linebacker Anthony McKee has been on quite a few visits during his recruiting process. After already stepping foot on numerous campuses including stops at Ohio State, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Illinois and Indiana, McKee finally checked out what Kentucky had to offer at their recent February 16th junior day. The event gave the Walnut Ridge High School product a chance to get more familiar with the UK football program and even watch John Calipari's basketball team in action.
"The visit was good. They made sure I saw everything before I left." Anthony told SB Nation. "It was a real good trip. The basketball game was really fun. I tell you the Kentucky fans really support their school." The 6'2 190 pound standout added on how his trip to Lexington went. "It is a nice school. The campus was real nice. I got to talk to a lot of the coaches. All in all, I had fun."
McKee, the 15th outside linebacker and 232nd overall player in the class of 2015 (according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings), currently holds an offer from not just the Wildcats but from a long list of programs that includes Arkansas, Boston College, Tennessee, Pittsburgh, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota and West Virginia.
Wanting to find the right overall place, McKee who accounted for over 100 total tackles as a junior for Walnut Ridge, isn't in a rush to make a college selection, stating he is looking for a few things before making a commitment to a school. "The main thing I am looking for is the education that I will get and the sports program. Anthony said. "The fun will come later."
