When asked if he has a top seven or eight, McKenzie said, "Probably Michigan, Ohio State, Pitt, North Carolina, and Syracuse, then probably Notre Dame, then Alabama.
"Notre Dame hasn't offered, but all the rest have.
"I tentatively scheduled an official visit to Ohio State when they play Texas.
"I think I'll take at least four visits, but I'd like to take all five.
"I'm going to the Notre Dame at Pitt game, but that's an unofficial visit. I'd like to go to the Ohio State-Michigan game because it's such a good rivalry."
