THE SCOOP ON MCCARTHY. From Chicago’s Nazareth to IMG Academy this coming season, here is one of the nation’s best – after showcasing his many skills over the past two seasons.

Extremely smart, great decision maker and has a big, accurate arm. Watch him perform, and this University of Michigan commit makes some throws that college players cannot make. He is solid in every way.

His arm, leadership and ability to be that stellar dual threat signal caller that colleges are looking for.

While nothing is etched in stone, here is someone who certainly is destined for some great things – this year and beyond.
