Three-star wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie recently landed a Notre Dame offer and he says the Irish are in his top five.
The Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage standout holds double-digit offers and more could be coming later in the summer. However, it's easy to know which school has made the biggest impression on McKenzie.
"Getting the Notre Dame offer felt good. The coaches were great," stated McKenzie. "The players were cool. I didn't know they were even recruiting me. They wanted me to come up and see what type of person I am. Once I was up there I knew I had a chance with them."
He named his top five at the IMG 7-on-7 National Championship in Bradenton. McKenzie said, "Right now my top five is Cincinnati, Kentucky, Michigan, Notre Dame, and West Virginia."
The explosive playmaker is being recruited as a slot receiver and kick returner. Rutgers wants him at cornerback.
On his Twitter handle, he goes by @JoyStick_Izzy and the name is appropriate. As a junior he caught 30 passes for 840 yards and 15 touchdowns. He averaged a ridiculous 28 yards per catch and scored a touchdown on fifty percent of his receptions. Basically he is a touchdown waiting to happen.
McKenzie said Kentucky, Notre Dame, and Rutgers are recruiting him the hardest.
When asked who was his childhood favorite?
He responded, "Virginia Tech was my favorite team growing up. I liked watching Marcus Vick and David Wilson was a good running back for them."
This summer he is planning trips to Cincinnati, Rutgers, and USF. He doesn't know where he will go on his official visits nor does he have a time frame on his decision.
