Report: Bru McCoy looking to transfer back to USC from Texas
Five-star wide receiver prospect Bru McCoy transferred to Texas after he had initially committed to USC earlier this year, and he is reportedly considering a return to the Trojans just four short months later.
Chris Trevino of USCFootball.com is reporting that McCoy wants to transfer back to USC.
USC reporter @ChrisNTrevino is reporting Texas freshman receiver Bru McCoy intends to transfer back to USC. McCoy enrolled in USC in January & transferred to Texas a few weeks later. Potentially going back to USC. Haven't confirmed it, but what an odd story if it happens.

The report was confirmed by partner site Horns247, but Longhorns reporter Taylor Estes says McCoy has not made a final decision and those close to him are urging him to stay at Texas.
McCoy, a star athlete from from Mater Dei in Santa Ana, Calif., was seeking a waiver to become eligible to play at Texas right away, so it’s unclear how another transfer — especially one back to the same school — would impact his eligibility. McCoy chose USC back in early January and fired back at the haters who said he was making a bad choice, and he later decided to leave after Kliff Kingsbury ended his brief tenure as USC’s offensive coordinator to take the head coaching job with the Arizona Cardinals.
There’s a lot of hype surrounding McCoy, and he is intensifying it by flipping back and forth between schools. Wherever he ends up, he will have to live up to some lofty expectations.
