History:Kool-Aid McKinstry, or also known by his real name, Ga’Quincy McKinstry, was given a five-star recruit rating by 247 Sports and was the number one cornerback prospect coming into college. As such, he had 27 offers before opting to play for Alabama, which was his home team being from Birmingham and living only 50 miles from campus.
McKinstry was given the nickname “Kool-Aid” by his grandmother when he was born. According to McKinstry, she thought his smile resembled that of the Kool-Aid Man. When McKinstry started playing football in high school, he chose to play as Kool-Aid, from there the name stuck.
