East High’s McGee nears his dream of playing college football

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (BVM) — Seven McGee is one of the top football prospects in the state of New York. With his college career in the near future, the East High running back is looking forward to playing at his dream school.

Growing up, McGee had always pictured himself donning the University of Oregon green and yellow. Following in the footsteps of one of his favorite Ducks players, De’Anthony Thomas, McGee’s skill-set would seem like a natural fit for the football program. With the chance to make it official, the four-star prospect committed to the program back in 2018. 

With a major goal checked off, the star running back would face a long road on the football field however. Beginning in his freshman year, McGee played at Grace Brethren High School in Simi Valley, Calif. McGee would rush for 1,151 yards and 12 touchdowns in his lone season at the school.

After deciding to return home for his sophomore year, the Rochester native would garner major attention at East High School with over 1,000 all-purpose yards, 10 touchdowns, 100 tackles and two interceptions. 

McGee would once again be on the move after his sophomore season with the Eagles, deciding to enroll in high school back in California. A later decision to return back to New York would cause McGee to lose his junior season at East High after his transfer appeal was denied.

The 5-foot-9 tailback would keep an active role with his East High teammates, attending all of the Eagles’ games. With no junior season on the football field, McGee would work to get back on the field for his senior season this fall. 

In February, McGee was involved in a serious car accident that landed him in the hospital. The Rochester native shared on his Twitter that he felt lucky to be alive.

“Could have lost my life last night …. The lord was truly with me. God is good I’m so grateful man.. the lord really has blessed me,” McGee posted. “Thanks for all who had prayers for me.”

After recovering from the accident, McGee had planned on playing in his senior season. Those plans could go awry with the NYSPHSAA moving high-risk sports to the spring. The Oregon commit has said he will not play spring ball in order to be healthy for his time in Eugene.

McGee will likely get his chance to get back on the field next fall with the Ducks. Oregon currently boasts the No. 3 ranked 2021 recruiting class, according to 247 Sports. With a total of 19 commits already for the Ducks, McGee will head in as major cog for the stacked class.
