Burnet, Texas, quarterback Stephen McGee took one unofficial visit last week. This week he's traveling north of the border.
"Stephen is at Oklahoma right now," McGee's father said. "He has spring break right now at his school. So he is taking advantage of that to get some visits in."

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound McGee is looking hard at all of his options early because his decision will be made official a little earlier than a lot of players.
"Stephen is a mid-year graduate from high school," his father said. "If he's going to do that he's going to have to start looking at schools a little more right now."
Last week, McGee visited Austin and the University of Texas.
"We had a good time at Texas. It was a neat deal. Mack (Brown) was very nice. We visited for a real long time."
Last week was the week to offer scholarships to McGee apparently, as three schools officially extended invitations to play football for them.
"Texas, Oklahoma and Tennessee all offered last week. Those three were the most recent. USC has been really active in this recruiting process to date. They seem to be very interested in him."
"I don't want to list them all, because I'll forget someone and I don't want that to be taken the wrong way. It has kind of blossomed on its own and taken off from that point. This is a really good year for quarterbacks in the state of Texas. There might be as many as 8 or ten in this state get Division-I scholarships this year.

As a junior, McGee threw for nearly 2,300 yards and 28 touchdown passes. That season also saw him suffer slight tear to the meniscus, a small MCL tear and a hairline fracture in his femur.
"He is fully recovering from the injuries without having surgery. That is what doctors told us initially they felt could happen. And it has. He is working out to get his strength and his speed to the spots he wants them to be."
Recently, McGee increased his bench press to over 300-pounds. He has also improved his 40-yard times to 4.57, 4.58 and 4.59 seconds in three timings.
"Stephen is trying to be really open minded about this process. He is looking at all of his options and trying to find the best fit for him."
