Report: Bru McCoy did not feel like he fit in at Texas
Bru McCoy is completing a bizarre arc to start his college football career.
After enrolling early at USC in January, McCoy decided to leave a few weeks later and transfer to Texas. But after around five months at Texas, he decided to leave the Longhorns and transfer back to USC.
Why the back-and-forth? According to Horns 247’s Chip Brown, McCoy felt homesick and like he didn’t fit in at Texas. Brown reported that McCoy, who is from Southern California, felt he would be more comfortable being at USC, where many of his former Mater Dei High School teammates play.
In the end, McCoy may have just made a rash decision to leave USC in response to Kliff Kingsbury leaving as offensive coordinator to join the Arizona Cardinals. Perhaps his initial choice of USC was planned and well-thought out, whereas the Texas choice was impulsive and backfired after a few months.
McCoy is a 5-star wide receiver and ranked by 247 as a top-10 recruit.
