While mostly focusing on West Coast schools, McKinley has been a target for Tennessee since last winter and has remained interested in the Vols the entire time. He’s expected in for the Georgia game on Oct. 10 to get a first-hand look at the Vols before making his final decision, which is scheduled to be in January.
RTI average: 3.75-stars
How He Fits
McKinley isn’t the fastest WR the Vols are going after, but he has good athleticism overall and seems to have a good grasp for route-running and the position overall for a young receiver. He uses his size and his instincts to get open and make big plays for his Centennial high school squad.
Tennessee will have to overcome the distance-from-home factor, but McKinley would be a nice addition to this class if the Vols could land him.
