Tom Herman entered the 2018 class with hopes of taking two quarterbacks and secured a pair of April commitments from Casey Thompson and Cameron Rising, but the ‘Horns first year head coach is still gauging the market as Corona Centennial (Calif.) product Tanner McKee will visit Austin next Saturday, McKee told Burnt Orange Nation.
A four-star prospect, McKee’s recruitment as it pertains to Texas will essentially have no impact on the current commitments of Thompson and Rising. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, McKee will take a two-year mission trip following his high school graduation, essentially making him a member of the 2020 class.
Herman and his staff offered McKee on March 9 and next weekend will mark his first trip from California to the Forty Acres. McKee recently visited Alabama and Georgia, as well.
To date, McKee holds 20 offers from programs including BYU, Stanford, Alabama, Georgia, Houston, Louisville, Nebraska, UCLA and North Carolina.
At 6’6, 220 pounds, McKee ranks as the nation’s No. 74 player, No. 5 pro-style quarterback and the No. 9 player in California, per 247Sports Composite.
