Former five-star athlete Bru McCoy may end up in cardinal and gold after all.
On Monday morning, news started swirling that the Texas Longhorns wide receiver McCoy was considering leaving Texas and coming back to California and the USC Trojans.
It was first reported by USCFootball.com’s Chris Trevino, and has since been picked up by Horns247 as well.
For those unfamiliar with the McCoy saga, the former Mater Dei star committed to USC during the 2019 All-America Game. He enrolled and was on campus for a few weeks, but then entered his name into the transfer portal in January.
After former USC offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury bolted for the NFL, many speculated that was the reason McCoy chose to transfer to a more secure Texas program. USC’s strength and conditioning program also came into question, this was before the hire of Aaron Ausmus.
While nothing has been set in stone yet, if McCoy does end up transferring from Texas back to USC, he most likely will not be granted eligibility to play his freshman year.
Another interesting component is that as of May 6, McCoy’s eligibility waiver still had not been filed to the NCAA.
Why wait almost five months to submit an eligibility waiver? McCoy’s new transfer rumors may be the reason.
