Over the weekend, four-star recruit Jalen McMillan cut his recruiting list down to four schools. The programs fortunate to remain in the hunt are Notre Dame, Oklahoma, USC and Washington.
McMillan is listed as the No. 9 wide receiver for the 2020 class, per 247Sports. He showed his big-play ability on the gridiron this past season, totaling 1,810 receiving yards and 21 touchdowns.
Each program on McMillan’s list has its own set of perks. However, the California native did express his desire to play for a winning team.
The Fighting Irish and Sooners both fit that bill pretty well.
Not only do both schools provide him the chance to win from the moment he steps on campus, but they also have great coaching.
Notre Dame- “I think their offense is well suited for me. I have a good relationship with coach Alexander, the WR coach and I like how he develops his players. It’s a great program with great tradition and I had a great visit out there earlier in the year.”
Oklahoma- “That place just feels like family to me. Chip Viney is like a big brother and from the Fresno area and I really like coach Simmons as well. He’s a great coach and he knows how to develop his wide outs and you can see the results on the field. Their offense is always explosive and is a good fit for me as well.”
McMillan did provide insight on USC and Washington as well.
The four-star wideout believes the Trojans are going through a rough stretch but will bounce back, meanwhile he likes the current quarterback situation for the Huskies.
There is no set date for McMillan’s commitment, but the expectation is that it’ll happen early in the fall.
