McKinney says he didn't commit to FAU
Earlier this week we told FAU fans that City College of San Francisco wide receiver Daniel McKinney planned to visit FAU.
McKinney said the visit went well, but, despite a Friday internet report saying he committed to FAU, made clear he has not committed to the Owls – at least not yet.
“I didn't commit. I just came down here and took a visit. I'm just waiting until next week,” McKinney told me this morning shortly before he boarded a plane to return home.
The 6-foot-1, 225-pound receiver said he enjoyed his trip to Boca Raton and doesn't have any visits to other schools planned.
He recently visited Akron and wants to take the weekend to sort out his thoughts. Should he choose FAU, he expects to be with the Owls for the second summer session and would be eligible for the 2012 season.
“FAU - they are the top of my list right now. They are the number one school right now,” McKinney said. “I'll just try to clear my head and make sure I'm making the right decision.”
McKinney could make a serious impact for the Owls, who are in desperate need of slot receivers.
One of the most explosive players on a City College of San Francisco team ranked by some as the top JUCO squad in the nation in 2011, McKinney caught 52 passes for 656 yards and five TDs in 10 games. He led the Rams with seven catches for 85 yards and scored a touchdown in the California state title game.
He had originally committed to West Virginia after that season, but the Mountaineers turned away upon learning that McKinney still needed to complete some academic requirements. McKinney expects to satisfy those requirements in the coming days.
