Oklahoma football transfer Justin McCay on hand for hoops

Advertisement

Former Bishop Miege High wide receiver Justin McCay, who has announced that he will transfer from Oklahoma, was in Lawrence on Wednesday night to take in the KU-K-State men’s basketball game. McCay, a red-shirt freshman who played in three games this season because of injury, sat in the KU student section with a handful of other recruits and Tim Grunhard, who coached McCay in high school.

McCay has received a release from OU and reportedly is deciding between KU and K-State. Missouri also may remain in the mix for McCay, a former five-star prospect who was the top-ranked player in Kansas according to Rivals.com during his senior year of high school.

FYI, for those interested...

Slant is reporting that Keon Stowers, our new JuCo DL is attempting to do some "recruiting" of his own. He's working to get Cordarelle Patterson, the nation's number 1 JuCo wide receiver out of Hutchinson CC, to come to KU. Paterson is Stowers cousin and they played in high school. We're currently not listed on Patterson's profile, but I have to think we will be soon if Stowers keeps making a push. We see how that unfolds....

Interesting article featuring Gabe Toomey whom some of you might remember was a player during the beginning of Mangino's regime. I always wondered what became of him following his sudden and seemingly strange decision to leave the program during a productive career.

I would like to ask how KU fans root for KSU? I was born and bred KU, I have never understood when I read posters on here who root for KSU. Yes, I know they are a Kansas team and a conference member, but I hope Arkansas beats them by a 100. I hate KSU- they beat us 17-1 in sports last year. Screw Bill Snyder and every wildcat out there!

With slowness in the hire, it looks more and more like the '49's. If they get lucky and play thru the Super bowl, hopefully no harm done. There have been comments to that effect, 'March is not too late'.

I still think the matter has been cleared by Z!

He can't be a KSU lean, him and Grunhard (his HS coach) have a great relationship.

Any news on D coordinator? Any concrete rumors? I feel like we're losing quality defensive players with out an official D coordinator.

Somebody on here a couple days ago posted that McCay is a heavy KSU lean. Anybody else seen that? I don't subscribe to any recruiting mags, just curious if there's anything behind that. It's hard not to like what you see of the guy in terms of athletic ability.

Justin - it doesn't get any better at any school than what you saw last night. Help us bring that kind of excitement to Memorial Stadium. Rock Chalk!

Mr. McCay-- Trying to be completely unbaised, I think KU gives you the best chance to make it to the NFL. At KU you will be a primary target in a NFL style of offense. Please make the right choice. We would love to see you represent KU. Good luck with your decision.

One thought on the coaching staff and the inclusion of Wyatt. Perhaps Weis is wanting to keep some continuity in order to speed up the process next year. By keeping one guy on offense, who can recruit, and keeping one guy on defense, who can recruit, Weis is keeping two guys who can fill him in on the personnel he already has and speed up the transition.

Re: McCay. We've got his high school coach. We've got two 5-star QB's on the way. And we'll have an offense that will throw the ball. If it's between us, the purple plaque and coach DUI, we've got to be able to close the deal on this one.

Free advice in the rules of life column: Never follow an 18 yr. old kid on twitter. What the hell could he possibly have to say of value?

I sent this to Tait the other day, and I love me some Matt Tait, but i said "Isn't that what we have you for? I lost a ton of respect for Carl Henry thru the whole recruiting escapade of his kid, can't say his name and he is such a footnote in KU basketball, I can't even remember it.

But, the point is: If you really need that much attention, we don't need you.

We're Kansas. If you want to be a Jayhawk, get on board and enjoy the experience and blessing of the University of Kansas, the Wheel, Joe's donuts, the Yellow sub, Memorial Stadium on a gorgeous fall Saturday, helping move some hottie into GSP and "swimming" in the Chi O fountain sans clothing, not to mention sitting in the shrine of college basketball for 60 or so games while your here.

If you pass on that opportunity, we'll be fine without you. But, for the love of God, take three life doses of humility and shut the hell up. You're not that important.

Kansas is much, much bigger than you are.

Just one more comment regarding Gehrig Dieter. Yesterday he made this comment on his twitter, "SMU has Garrett Gilbert. Better than heaps and crist." More classless comments coming from this kid that make me perfectly fine w/ him not picking KU. What is the point of knocking on Heaps and Crist and I like how he failed to capitalize their names as if showcasing some junior high diss ala Mizzou calling KU "kU". The kid seems like such a tool and he will soon be a forgotten footnote on the college landscape. The other day he also said, "KU fans are a bunch of haters". His ego drove his recruitment and he craved gaining twitter followers, which makes his 600+ drop in followers even funnier. Btw, if you are still following him, please unfollow immediately.

I believe Coach Stoops and OU gave permission for him to transfer without losing a year for going in conference. Not sure how fast he could play or if he has to sit out one year??? He would be a great pick up for KU. He would be a great target to match up with this pro-style high octane offense. Let's get him in there KU!

Any news on whether he'll be granted the hardship waiver?
