The USC Trojans may lose one of their most promising wide receivers before he plays a single college football game.
According to Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports, wide receiver recruit Bru McCoy—who has already started taking classes at USC—is in the NCAA transfer portal. According to 247Sports’ composite rankings, McCoy is a 5-star prospect and the No. 9 overall player and No. 1 athlete in the class of 2019.
High-profile transfers have been a dominant storyline throughout the early portion of the college football offseason, as Jalen Hurts transferred from Alabama to Oklahoma, Justin Fields transferred from Georgia to Ohio State and Tate Martell transferred from Ohio State to Miami, among others.
McCoy would be another talented player to switch schools if he does go through with the decision to transfer.
Burnt Orange Nation noted he originally committed to USC over the Texas Longhorns at the All-American Bowl but is having second thoughts after Kliff Kingsbury took the head coaching job with the Arizona Cardinals. Kingsbury was the offensive coordinator for the Trojans before departing for the NFL.
A transfer would give Texas head coach Tom Herman another opportunity to recruit McCoy as he looks to continue turning around the program. The Longhorns are coming off their first double-digit win season since 2009 and landed the No. 5 recruiting class in the country in the 2019 cycle, per 247Sports.
Adding McCoy from the transfer portal would only serve to make Texas’ future all the brighter in the coming years.
