A good showing during an all-star game week can do wonders for a recruit. That is the case for Plantation, FL (American Heritage) wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie. After a good week leading up to the Under Armour All-America High School game, McKenzie received a scholarship offer from Florida.
McKenzie maintains that he’s still committed to Notre Dame despite the attention he has recently received. He is open to looking at other schools and seeing what else is out there. The interesting point is that only one of the major recruiting services actually lists him as a Fighting Irish commit. But hey, you say potato and I say, well, also potato.
The 5’8”, 165-pound wide receiver fits the small, but shifty mold and has the ability to break off long plays. While size is an issue, plenty of others at his size have had success before him at the college level.
If you’re wondering why American Heritage sounds familiar, current Gators’ freshman offensive lineman Roderick Johnson played there as well. The high school has also produced back-to-back five-star running backs that did not commit to Florida, so we’ll just ignore that.
