Strong Camp Run for McKenzie
Jaborian McKenzie profile "I talked with the receivers coach at Mississippi State, Coach Mirando when I got there," said McKenzie. "He was the main one telling me that he wanted me to run in the 4.4s." Much to the delight of Tip and his father, Shed McKenzie, the Trinity Episcopal product did a little better than anticipated. "I ran a 4.39," said Tip matter of factly. "I was real happy with my time especially since I have a little pull in my quad. "When I come back to Big Dawg camp, I am going to run even faster." McKenzie and Mississippi State commitment Deonte Evans both did some work with Bulldogs' running back Coach Greg Knox. "He had me do some running back drills and he told me that I did good," said Tip. "He told me that they are going to meet and talk about everything and that he wants me to call him tomorrow." The day prior, McKenzie headed to Oxford, Mississippi for the Ole Miss Elite camp. Tip ran in the low 4.4s at that event as well and feels good about how things are going with Coach Houston Nutt and his staff. "I feel like I did pretty good at Ole Miss, but I pulled my quad, so I couldn't do everything I wanted to do," said McKenzie. "I'll have to see if they offer or not. "I am not sure what is going to happen, but they want me to call them later this week." The chance to play in the SEC and represent his home state is something Tip has talked a lot about. In just a few days, he may have one or two options to make that option a reality.
