One of the nation’s premier pocket passer prospects, McKee completed 203-280 passes for 3,522 yards and 39 touchdowns as a junior and as a result, has seen his recruitment take off.
To date, McKee holds 19 offers, which includes Alabama, Colorado, Georgia, Nebraska, Nevada, UCLA and North Carolina, among others. Considering Herman and the staff are prioritizing the quarterback market for the 2018 cycle, expect the ‘Horns to try and get McKee on campus as some point in the near future to remain relevant in his recruitment.
At 6’6, 199 pounds, McKee ranks as the nation’s No. 138 player, No. 7 pro-style quarterback and the No. 18 player in California, per 247Sports Composite.
