“I have been talking to Coach Blake Anderson at Southern Miss, and he is excited about getting me up there for my official visit. I’m set to visit on January 23rd," McCants said.

"He (Coach Anderson) is also excited about recruiting me. He said I will fit perfectly into their passing offense – everyone likes me as their slot receiver.”

"I talk to Coach Maurice Harris, and he says they really like me a lot. Arkansas State likes me as a return man, and as a slot receiver, mainly in the slot position.”

“I have talked to Coach Tyson Helton at UAB, Coach Ron Dickerson at Mississippi, and Coach Joker Phillips at Kentucky. All of the coaches I talk to like me as a slot receiver because I have good hands and I run well with the ball after I catch it."
