"I've seen Cincinnati," he said. "I've been up to Murfreesboro one time. I went there when they were playing the state championship game there and got the chance to look around."
McGaha plans to take his time before making a decision.
"I think I will wait until the end of the season," he said.
A variety of factors will go into his final choice, but he sums it up in one simple statement.
"Right now, I'm just trying to figure out a place I can play football, graduate, have a good life," he said.
