One of the fastest rising prospects who benefited by his performance as a senior safety Stanjarivus McKay (6-2, 200, 4.52) from Long Beach (Calif.) Poly. He has two offers on the table and is being steadily recruited by Pac 10 teams. It appears that McKay is already narrowing things down.
McKay has legitimate offers from Colorado and Hawai'i, while he is getting legitimate looks by UCLA, Arizona, Oregon and Washington.
"It is down between Colorado and UCLA," McKay said. "I'm leaning towards Colorado because UCLA hasn't offered me yet."
"I like how Colorado's program is run," McKay said. "They run trap formations for the defensive backs so that allows the defensive backs to make plays."
McKay recently took a visit to Colorado.
"The city of Boulder is cool," McKay said. "You can drive to the mountains from the campus and find peaks where you see the whole city of Boulder."
"I will probably commit to Colorado in January if UCLA has not offered me by then."
McKay is definitely one of the reasons that Poly will be playing in the Pac 5 SS CIF Championship game on Saturday.
As a senior, McKay has accounted for 56 tackles, three picks, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble.
McKay and his Poly teammates will take on Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Tesoro. Both teams come into this 12-0 and the winner will represent Southern California in the State Championship the following week.
The scouting report on McKay is he's a hard hitting, rangy, ball hawking safety that is very good in space and is a very good open field tackler.
In the weight room, McKay currently benches 250, squats 450 and power cleans 235. According to MacKay he has also recorded a 40-inch vertical.
