NC State held a big junior day event Saturday, with a whole bunch of prospects in the 2017 class on campus to meet the coaches and check out the facilities. A weekend like this often leads to commitments, and NC State was fortunate enough to land a verbal from Wakefield (NC) quarterback Matt McKay on Friday evening.
It's always encouraging when you can keep the talent in your back yard from heading elsewhere. McKay holds offers from Pittsburgh (Matt Canada connection) and West Virginia, along with some mid-majors. During his junior season, he threw for more than 2,400 yards and ran for more than 1,100.
He is a consensus three-star prospect at this point in the 2017 cycle (it's early), and he ranks as the No. 28 prospect in North Carolina. McKay is listed at 6'4, 185 pounds by 247Sports. He is the third member of State's 2017 class, joining Aycock (NC) TE Damien Darden and Mooresville Senior (NC) DB Chris Ingram.
Here are McKay's junior season highlights:
