Tulane, South Carolina, Louisiana Tech and Ole Miss followed suit with scholarships giving the six-foot, 275-pounder plenty of options.

McGhee's most recent offer came as a bit of a surprise when he was contacted by coaches from Ole Miss via Facebook.

"I didn't even think Ole Miss knew about me," McGhee said. "Their coaches just asked me on Facebook to give them a call and said they liked what they saw on film and wanted to offer me. I'd never heard from Ole Miss in my life."
