2011 Wing Commits to DePaul
McKinney is a Chicago-area native who attended Maine East for three years before transferring to Quality Education. After coming home for the holidays on break from school, he made the decision to attend DePaul.
McKinney chose DePaul over interest from Iowa, Oregon State, and VCU.
After a solid performance at the Marshall County Hoopfest earlier this month, Scout.com's Evan Daniels described McKinney as "a pretty good athlete, (who) can lock down on defense and also has a pull-up floater in his arsenal."

McKinney joins Shane Larkin, Braeden Anderson, Jamee Crockett, Derrell Robertson and Macari Brooks in the Class of 2011 for DePaul.
