The impressive safety prospect is a consensus 4 star recruit across all recruiting services. Alabama was one of his very first offers, dating back to mid-July, where the Tide and Clemson Tigers offered just hours apart.
He visited Bama in late July, saying,”Had a great time at Bama!! Will definitely be back soon.”
True to his words, Mckinney visited the Crimson Tide last weekend as they took on the Ole Miss Rebels.
Even tho the Tide had a rough outing, it was impressive experience for the 4 star prospect.
Had a great time last night at Bama ????????????

Mckinney and the Roswell Hornets have had an undefeated start to the season. The Hornets defense is one of the best in Georgia and Mckinney has made impact plays along the way.
While roaming the field, the Roswell junior has the innate ability of reading the QB’s eyes, and picking the ball off. Once the ball is in his hand, he is a threat to bring it back for a defensive score or field position flip – making for a major momentum changing play.
Mckinney is now the 7th commit for Alabama in the class of 2017.
