"I talk to a few college coaches," McCray said earlier this week. "I talk to UCF, FIU, FAU, Indiana, and Middle Tennessee State. They like my height and overall size. They like how I run routes and stuff during the games. I need to get better at working off the jam a bit."
McCray says that his specialty is owning the ball when it is in the air against cornerbacks that he often times has a legit size advantage over.
"My ability to get the ball in the air and my height are good things," he said.
McCray is a student at Eastside which is an International Baccalaureate (IB)school , very tough with its coursework.
"It is challenging at times, but I need it to get to college," he said. "I have a 2.8 but working to get to a 3.0 GPA."
He likes the state schools and the receivers that have played there. He has grown to really follow the guys that have the size at the position.
"I grew up liking Florida, but I also like Florida State," he said. "I like Kelvin Benjamin and what their receivers did this year. I like Larry Fitzgerald and Calvin Johnson. Percy Harvin and Dallas Baker were my college favorites. I compare myself to Fitzgerald and Johnson because of their height and they are laid back during the games."
In the end the education is important for McCray. That will weight heavy when he makes a decision on a school.
"I am looking for somewhere that I can fit in," he said. "I need to see that it is the school for me. I want to make sure I can get the academics in so I can do the school and the football."
