The Memphis product redshirted during the 2021-22 season and did not appear in any games during the 2022-23 season. McKay was rated a 3-star tight end by most major recruiting services coming out of high school but could never crack the tight end rotation.
McKay did land on the 2021-22 SEC All-Academic Honor Roll in his first year.
His father, Orlando, played for Washington from 1989-1991 as a wide receiver, winning two Rose Bowls and a national championship in ‘91. The Huskies may pursue the legacy tight end.
We wish him the best in his future endeavors.
