GaQuincy McKinstry is a 5 star 2021 football prospect. Known as Kool-Aid, the Pinson Valley junior helped his school win two Class 6A football titles in a row. As a result, recruiting experts and college scouts are already keeping an eye on him.
However, McKinstry is not just looking forward to playing football in college. Aside from football, he also has basketball offers from top colleges in the nations, including Clemson, Auburn, and Kansas. He told sports betting news sites that he wants to play both sports in college.
McKinstry told sports news reporters he’s good at both football and basketball. In fact, he feels that he is good enough to make it in both the NBA and the NFL. As a result, he doesn’t want to limit himself in college. In addition, he said he’ll make the decision on what to focus on after.
5 Star 2021 Football and Basketball Prospect
In last year’s Northeast Regional Final, McKinstry hit the game-winner to help Pinson Valley win the title. He averages 14 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists per game. Also, he is known for being a dunker. It was the school’s first basketball title.
He was part of the AHSAA Elite 100 showcase last summer. His dunks made it to several highlight reels. On the football field, he played as a receiver last year where he got 12 pass break-ups and six interceptions.
In 2019, he is part of the offensive line. The 247 Sports Composite gave him the 5 star 2012 football prospect rating. Pinson Valley coach Patrick Nix told Easy Pay Per Head that McKinstry is good on both defense and offense. That’s why he attracts more scouts than some sportsbooks get more players.
McKinstry comes from the same state that produced Bo Jackson. He won the Heisman Trophy when he played for Auburn. Later on, he played football and baseball at the professional level.
