McCoy set to transfer from USC
According to sources close to Bru McCoy, the five-star athlete will transfer from USC to Texas.
McCoy is expected to be in Austin by next week. He and the Texas coaching staff anticipate he’ll have to sit out a year but they will apply for a waiver hoping to avoid that situation.
McCoy was all set to commit to Texas before the 2019 All-American Bowl but was convinced to commit to USC by former Trojan offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury at the last minute. After Kingsbury was hired away to be the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, McCoy apparently soured on the idea of wearing cardinal and goal.
The product of Mater Dei HS has received his family’s blessing for the transfer, which is a big deal given that his father is close with USC athletic director Lynn Swann. He’s set to announce his intentions to transfer soon.
