Heading into spring football, Oklahoma State was looking at the prospect of losing its top three cornerbacks from a year ago. Perrish Cox and Terrance Anderson completed their eligibility and junior Andrew McGee’s status was unclear after injured his neck in the Cowboys’ Bedlam loss to Oklahoma.
But McGee has been cleared by doctors and looks poised to continue his Cowboys career this fall.
“He’s been released,” cornerbacks coach Jason Jones said. “(But) he won’t do anything until August. (When he returns) he’ll be a great asset.”
McGee was an excellent third cornerback for OSU before suffering the neck injury. As a superb tackler who was also solid in coverage, he would be a terrific addition to a young group of cornerbacks. OSU’s top two cornerbacks this spring have been sophomores Brodrick Brown and Andrae May with newcomers Malcolm Murray and Devin Hedgepeth behind them.
Simply put, if McGee can return and play like he did before his injury he could be an important part of the Pokes’ defense in 2010.
