Thursday Whispers: Bru McCoy Just Latest Debacle
Five-star wide receiver Bru McCoy is considering putting his name into the NCAA transfer portal and going to Texas.
Why? For one thing, McCoy was assured Kliff Kingsbury would remain at USC up until Kingsbury went to the Arizona Cardinals. For another, McCoy was led to believe USC would have an Air Raid offense next season and now the Trojans could abandon it with Jedd Fisch and Tim Drevno considered the main candidates right now for the job.
But McCoy is just the latest possible defection. Tailback Jordan Wilmore dropped USC after he committed. Cornerback Chris Steele did likewise.
I heard USC prepared for 10 recruits to visit last weekend and only one showed up. What does that tell you? USC is running around right now offering recruits who committed to other schools.
It’s a desperate and haphazard approach. It cannot afford the black eye that would be caused if McCoy left.
Meanwhile, what do we hear from Lynn Swann? Crickets.
