OU signee Justin McCay likely to play receiver

The biggest problem for Justin McCay at Oklahoma will be finding a position.

Because one thing is clear: the kid can play football.

At Bishop Miege High School in Shawnee, Kan., McCay was a two-way star at wide receiver and linebacker.

McCay, the highest-rated recruit in this Sooner class according to Rivals.com, was recruited by many schools as a linebacker.

But OU sees McCay (6-3, 200) as a receiver, in part because that's more a position of need than linebacker for the Sooners.

While he's not a polished product at receiver, McCay showed glimpses of stardom there at the U.S. Army All-American Game last month. On one play, he caught a quick pass, juked the first defender and sprinted upfield for a 20-yard gain.

"You can't argue with his athleticism," said Jeremy Crabtree, national recruiting editor for Rivals. "He has the ability to be special. It's just a matter of trying to find his niche."
