Three-star ATH Josh McCray (6-1 207) of Enterprise, AL landed an offer from USC in March and at this point has the Gamecocks and Ole Miss as his top two. He also likes Kentucky, Troy and UAB in his top five. He has not yet visited USC but wants to once travel restrictions are lifted. McCray said the bulk of his contract has been with Gamecocks’ head coach Will Muschamp.
“Me and Coach Muschamp have been texting for a long time,” McCray said. “He wants to know how I’m doing, what I was doing, how I was doing in school, what I was doing after school, stuff like that. He said I was a tremendous athlete and he liked the way I can move for my size.”
The question for McCray is where will he play in college. In high school he’s played receiver, running back, outside linebacker, safety, and he’s returned punts and kicks. His preference is to be on the offensive side and coaches seem to like him more for that.
“They say they like my size and how I can move with the ball in my hands,” McCray said. “How I can just run over defenders.”
McCray also has a recent offer from Arkansas and he’s been hearing from Auburn. He wants to take visits and the make his decision after the season.
In 9 games as a sophomore according to MaxPreps stats, McCray caught 45 passes for 575 yards and 3 touchdowns, and he rushed for 91 yards on 27 carries and scored 12 touchdowns.
In the 247Sports Composite, McCray is ranked as a running back and is #80 in the country. He’s ranked the #38 prospect in Alabama.
