Louisville (Ky.) Central defensive tackle James McKinney was in Columbus on Saturday, attending the Ohio State-Michigan game on an unofficial visit.
"It was pretty fun," McKinney said. "It was a really good experience. I met some people and some coaches.
"It was a great game. The fans drew me in. They love the players. They're treated really well."
McKinney is working on his official visit schedule.
"I have Nebraska Nov. 26," McKinney said. "My second visit will be Oklahoma or Clemson. It will probably be Ohio State or LSU for the next one.
"And I'm looking at Louisville, Kentucky, and Michigan."
So who holds the lead for McKinney's services?
"Right now it's between Michigan and Louisville because I know more about those two," McKinney said. "But that could change."
The 6-foot-2, 277 pound McKinney is the No. 9 defensive tackle prospect in the Rivals.com player rankings and the No. 1 prospect in the state of Kentucky.
