Washington (D.C.) H.D. Woodson quarterback Eddie McGee holds offers from Rutgers and Temple, but another school from the Big Ten has entered the race for the 6-foot-4, 189-pounder with 4.64-second speed. What does McGee think of the offer and who did he get it from?
"Things have been getting wild lately as more teams have been talking to me and even last Friday I got an offer from Illinois," he said. "I like Illinois and coach Locksley is pretty cool because he's also from the D.C. area. I also like the offense Illinois runs and I know for a fact that they play a lot of young players which is good too."
Besides the Illini, Tennessee has been talking to McGee's coach.
"I haven't personally talked to the coach from Tennessee, but my coach says there is a shot at a verbal there," he said. "I mean if Tennessee is in it, that's the big-time right there. That's a big school, big stadium and I'd love to go there."
The two-star prospect confirmed he plans to take officials to all three schools that have offered sometime in December, but he has no idea who will get his other two visits.
Last week McGee took in the Virginia Tech-Maryland game on Thursday night for fun.
"That game was tight and I liked the way Marcus Vick played, he kind of reminds me of his brother as he can run, but he tends to pass more," he said. "I had a good time checking out the game."
Despite their 4-5 record, the No. 2 player in the District of Columbia is playing well.
"I'm leading the area in passing yards with 1,800 yards and 13 touchdowns. I've also run the ball for 500 yards and two touchdowns," he said. "I'm happy with how I've done given our game situations, but I think in some games I should have done much better. I can say that at least I'm a lot more aware of everything on the field now. I have learned a lot more about picking up blitzes, reading coverage and knowing when to make the right throw."
