Shawnee Mission (Kan.) Bishop Miege star receiver Justin McCay is one of the top 2010 players in all of Kansas City.
In fact some believe the 6-foot-3, 197-pounder might already be the best overall athlete in the area, especially since he will be recruiting in both football and basketball.
But for now, things have been really heating up for him on the football front.

"Recruiting is going pretty good, especially for it being this early," McCay said. "I got a few of offers –Wisconsin, Notre Dame, K-State, KU and Missouri have offered me. Missouri is up there because they're on top right now and they're in the Big 12. I wouldn't say they're my top pick right now, but they're doing good in football, so that's a plus."
McCay hit camps at Wisconsin, Kansas and Missouri this summer. He said all three were impressive.
"I've been talking to Wisconsin and coach Dave Doeren and DelVaughn Alexander a lot," McCay said. "I went to their camp. I just got back from there just a week or two ago. It was a really nice up there. I liked it. I also went to KU and MU's camp earlier this summer, too."
Early on two coaches have stood out to him.
"I've been talking to coach Andy Hill of MU and coach Alexander from Wisconsin," he said. "Those are the two main schools I've been talking to right now. But all the schools are different and none of them stand out too much right now. They're all cool."
"My dad is real cool about the process. He just tells me to be humble and make hard decisions by thinking about it. I'm looking for after college, what a coach can bring off the field too. How the players do in the classroom and on the field and do they care or am I just another number."
The rest of his summer, McCay has been busy getting ready for his junior season.
"This year it should be fun," he said. "Hopefully we win state. I'm going to play wide receiver, returner and outside linebacker. Wide receiver is my favorite. I think I'm really good with my breaks, route running, and I'm getting stronger."
"We made it to the state semifinals and if we would've won we would've made it to the championship."
