Niceville (Fla.) wide receiver Tyre McCants has done a little bit of everything for the Eagles during his senior season. Through three games he has rushed for 107 yards on five attempts for three touchdowns while grabbing 14 passes for 203 yards and two scores and returned a kick-off for a touchdown.
On the recruiting trail he is working to take unofficial visits to Florida State, Florida, Troy, UCF, and USF. Nevada is showing some interest as well and may be close to offering according an assistant coach at Niceville.
The opportunity to play close to home appeals to McCants. He said, "I would rather stay in state, but I will go outside of the state too. It all depends on where I feel comfortable."
Despite the poor start by USF, the Bulls are still a factor for McCants. Of the schools he wants to visit he has been to Tampa before and enjoyed his time there.
"I went to South Florida and I really liked the campus," noted McCants. "I liked the atmosphere and being up there. I talk to Coach Holt a lot. He is real cool."
Even though UCF isn't far from him, he has yet to check out Orlando program. He holds a verbal offer from the Knights. "I have a lot of family down there, so it's not that far from home.'
His father Terrance Anthony played at FSU and spent two years in the NFL at receiver for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
McCants said he will wait until after the season to make a decision. He said education and overall fit will be biggest factors when he selects his school.
