Louisville (Ky.) Central four-star defensive tackle James McKinney was scheduled to visit Oklahoma this weekend, but instead he ended up at Louisville. Well, at least he was there for a while.
The 6-foot-2, 277-pounder said he was asked to leave early from the official visit to UofL because of some rumors that were spread by several other recruits on the visit.
"I wanted to go to Oklahoma, but I couldn't make it that far from home because of some family issues, so I went to UofL instead," he said.

"It wasn't good. I didn't like it at all. They dismissed me and told me to go home. A couple of recruits told the coach that I was bad-mouthing the program.
"That ain't cool. What's funny is that I was going to go to Louisville, too."
Apparently not now.
McKinney, ranked as the nation's No. 9 tackle, said he's now up in the air as to who will get his final official visit the first weekend in January before he leaves for the U.S. Army All-America game.
"The final visit will probably be Oklahoma, Florida or Ohio State," he said.
As far as a top three goes, McKinney said he likes Clemson, Nebraska and Michigan.
