Bru McCoy will officially transfer to Texas
Bru McCoy’s stay at USC was brief.
McCoy was enrolled at USC as recently as this week, but chatter picked up on Thursday that he was seeking a transfer and particularly had his eye on Texas. Now on Friday, Yahoo’s Pete Thamel says McCoy is officially going to become a Longhorn.
Thamel says McCoy has signed financial aid paperwork at Texas, been admitted there, and is preparing to begin classes there next week.
McCoy, a five-star prospect from Mater Dei in Santa Ana, Calif., chose USC earlier in January and even responded to haters who said he was making a bad decision by sticking with the Trojans. Then Kliff Kingsbury, who was briefly USC’s offensive coordinator, got the Arizona Cardinals head coaching job. A few weeks later, McCoy decided to leave.
McCoy, who is listed as an “athlete” by recruiting services, may find it challenging to be granted eligibility to play in the fall. Since he already enrolled at USC, he is a transfer student and has to sit out a year due to NCAA rules. He and his family reportedly are working with a lawyer to see if he can be eligible to play this year.
