Corey McKeon is one of the best overall prospects in Illinois and has fairly sizeable list of schools that he’s likely to choose from. As a star at three positions, he has displayed tremendous versatility to college coaches, and already has a good list of offers to choose from.
“I play running back, wide receiver, and defensive back,” said McKeon, of Naperville (Ill.) North. “At running back I ran 49 times for about 730 yards. As a receiver I caught 30 passes for like 600 yards, and a few touchdowns. On defense I played defensive back and made about 50 tackles.”
McKeon is a prototypical skill position player. He runs the 40-yard dash in 4.49 seconds and glides easily downfield. McKeon has great size at 6-foot-2, 211-pounds and could even project as an outside linebacker. He bench-presses 325 pounds and squats 475, and that number is growing every year.
“I think one of my biggest assets is my versatility. I feel like I can play and play well at any position coach puts me at.”
McKeon has offers from Wisconsin, Purdue, Boston College, Connecticut, South Carolina, Northern Illinois, Miami of Ohio, and Bowling Green. He’s taken unofficial visits to Wisconsin, Purdue, Miami of Ohio, and Iowa.
“I’ve got a lot of great schools to choose from. I’ve been to Wisconsin and Iowa more than the other places, but would like to take even more unofficials. When the time comes to take official visits, I’ll probably decide on some schools that I wouldn’t be able to take otherwise. UCLA, Southern Cal, and Connecticut might get three of my officials, because they’re a little further from home than other places.”
