Columbus (Ohio) Marion Franklin's Anthony McKee has been planning to commit before his senior season, but with his first game later this week the three-star linebacker has decided to wait.
"I figure I am going to wait," McKee said. "I still want to get it over with, but I do want to make a few more trips to confirm some stuff. I do plan on making it soon, still."
Michigan State has been the team at the top of McKee's list at least since an early August visit to East Lansing, if not earlier. They remain in that spot heading into the season.
"It's a tight race, but they are still the team to beat," McKee said.
McKee had named a top ten in July, but as he gets into crunch time for his decision a smaller list of potential visit destinations has emerged.
"I want to get up to Michigan State, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Pitt and Purdue," McKee said. "There is one more school, which is Kentucky. Some may be unofficial visits."
The new timetable for a decision is within the next month or two, and McKee will look to start scheduling visits soon.
"I don't think I am going to go on an official this first week, but (probably) the second and third week," he said.
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound McKee will kick off his senior season this Friday against Westerville North. He is coming off a junior season in which he recorded 110 tackles, 12 sacks and three interceptions.
