Centennial (Corona, Calif.) quarterback Tanner McKee is looking forward to a two-year Mormon mission after high school, so he doesn’t know when or where his first college game will be. One thing he does know is what his last high school game will be.
McKee, a 6-6, 220-pound uncommitted senior, received his U.S. Army All-American Bowl jersey Wednesday at his school as part of the Army All-American Bowl Selection Tour presented by American Family Insurance.
The U.S Army All-American Bowl will kick off Saturday, Jan. 6 in San Antonio at 1 p.m. ET on NBC.
McKee, considered the No. 2 pro-style quarterback in the 2018 class by 247Sports’ composite rankings, hurt his ankle in Centennial’s 40-20 loss to IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) early in the second game of the season.
He returned to the lineup on Sept. 15 against Narbonne (Harbor City) and has completed 31 of 46 passes for 573 yards and four touchdowns. He’s also run for 103 yards and three touchdowns.
“It wasn’t 100 percent against Narbonne, but it should be this week,” McKee said. “I feel like everything is clicking for the team.”
The No. 10-ranked Huskies (3-1) play at Roosevelt (Eastvale) on Friday.
