Leander, Texas athlete Josh McKinley led his team to the third round of the playoffs before losing to Garland, but now his recruiting process is starting to take shape.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound athlete still holds the same four scholarship offers from Colorado State, Purdue, SMU, and UTEP. He has yet to take any other official visits other than a late October trip to Purdue. McKinley says that more visits are coming and new schools are popping up on the radar.
"I've talked to a few schools about setting up a visit," McKinley said. "Colorado State and SMU. UTEP is still in the mix, they've always been. Some new schools like Iowa State, Nebraska, and Kansas are pushing hard and showing interest."
McKinley says that he likely won't be committing until the end of January. He'll more than likely set up his official visits for later this month. Most schools are going to give him a look at quarterback first and go from there.
"Most of the schools say I can play quarterback and if that doesn't work out, I can play other positions," McKinley said.
With his senior season in the books, McKinley is looking forward to the next step. However, he won't forget the experience he had playing his last year of high school football.
"I had so much fun out there," he said. "I grew up a lot and our team grew up together."
