McCoy has been at the center of headlines all year. He officially committed to USC in January but then decided to transfer to Texas three weeks later. USC’s offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury had left the program to become the Arizona Cardinals’ head coach, making the program seem less desirable. But after around four months at Texas, McCoy has decided to leave Austin.
A report earlier this week said McCoy was thinking of transferring back to USC.
Orangebloods’ Anwar Richardson reports that McCoy plans to go back to USC.

McCoy played his high school ball at Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei in Southern California. He is listed as an athlete and was ranked as a top-10 recruit.
It’s unclear how his flip-flopping of schools will impact his eligibility for the fall.
