“They expect me to lead the class and go ahead and start it off.” McGhee said. “They’re on me hard, and they want me to get the other guys in. They expect me to come in and have some playing time. I want to try to bring in Chad Clay of Peachtree Ridge. He’s another big-time corner in the state. I’ve got a lot of guys in the state, but not only here. We’re looking at the whole country. As soon as I finish this plug, I’m going to start recruiting.””Coach Pruitt plays about five or six defensive backs at a time, because he’s an old country guy.” McGhee said. “He plays a lot of DBs. There will be times we’ll have six DBs, and they could be freshman. It doesn’t matter. If you can play, you can play. He’ll put you on the field. That’s what I like about Coach Pruitt, he’s just country and old school, and I like that a lot.”

“I can play anything on the defensive side of the ball.” McGhee said. “I play a lot of nickel, especially at the Rising Seniors game. I’m a lockdown corner, and I can play anything. The spot Damian Swann played a lot was a lot of nickel and blitzing, and I think Jeremy Pruitt sees me playing a little bit of that spot.”

“I knew it.” McGhee said. “I just had to see if outside of football it’s where I’d be comfortable, like going to classes or in the buildings. It was just the overall feel of the campus. That topped it off and sealed the deal. My family and I talked about it the whole ride back, and they supported me. They’re Dawgs now. They’re supportive.”
