Interest growing for Florida junior

For 2009 quarterback Brandon McGee, six games was enough to reinforce a bigtime performance at Florida State's summer camp back in July. The 6-foot, 170-pound athlete posted a 4.38 forty time at the camp and showed an abundance of athleticism. His performance won him an offer from Florida State earlier this fall and more recruiting attention continues to follow him.

McGee's athleticism has several in state schools interested in his services. Beyond the Florida State offer, he has already received an offer from Florida International and he another school may be close to getting involved.

"I've been talking a lot to South Florida," McGee said. "Coach Scott said that they're close to offering me a scholarship."

At an early stage in the process, South Florida would be happy to just be another team in the race, but McGee sounds more than a little bit interested in the growing program.

"I like the Bulls a lot," he said. "If not number two they're probably number one on my list. I really like their style of offense. They also like me as a quarterback and I'm really interested in playing quarterback at the next level."

Due to an ankle injury, McGee only played in six games as a junior but put up over 1300 yards passing and 13 passing touchdowns while adding over 400 yards rushing with two touchdowns on the ground. Due to production in limited opportunities he is beginning to see a number of college options come into focus.

"Wisconsin came down recently," he said. "I don't know if I can see myself going up to Wisconsin but it's always good to have an offer from a school like that. Central Florida likes me and wants me as a defensive back."

McGee's offer list should continue to grow after the spring and summer when he intends on going to several camps and combines to increase his stock.

"I'm planning on going to the Florida State junior day. I want to go to the UF summer camp. I'd like to get out to USC for their Rising Stars Camp and I'll probably go to a camp at either UGA or Georgia Tech."

McGee should feel very confident heading into the camp circuit. The junior runs a 10.63 100 meters and was a part of a 4x100 team that put up the best time in the state of Florida and the sixth best time in the country.
