McKinney will be a sophomore with three years of eligibility remaining. He is a 6'1'' guard that should be able to back up Dylan Garrity, and could provide some outside shooting for Sac State.
A 6-foot-1, 165-pound guard from Union City, Calif., McKinney spent two years at Fremont’s Ohlone College, redshirting in 2010-11, and playing his freshman season in 2011-12. As a freshman, he was a first team all-state and first team all-Coast Conference selection after averaging 14.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.0 steals per game while shooting 53.0 percent (123-232) from the field, 40.9 percent (18-44) from the three-point line and 80.0 percent (100-125) from free throw line.This fills a big need for Sacramento State, because they didn't really have a true PG behind Garrity. McKinney is a guy that is capable of playing both guard spots, and they should benefit from his versatility.
Sacramento State probably has a couple of scholarships remaining, and I would expect them to go after some big men and add some more depth. Things continue to be shaping up very nicely for the Hornets in 2012-13.
