The Texas Longhorns just added a massive piece to their 2019 Class. According to USC247, five-star ATH Bru McCoy will be transferring from USC to Texas and enrolling as a member of the Longhorns in the coming days.
McCoy is from Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, California has been considering this move since Kliff Kingsbury left as the USC offensive coordinator for the head coaching job with the Arizona Cardinals. McCoy was down to USC and Texas, but ultimately announced his decision to join the Trojans at the All-America Game earlier this month.
According to 247Sports, McCoy was rated as the No. 1 athlete prospect in the nation and the No. 10 player overall when he signed as a wide receiver.
Kingsbury took the job at USC after Tech fired him, and per the 247USC report, Kingsbury joining the Trojans was a big reason McCoy picked them over the Longhorns. It’s unclear if USC will allow McCoy out of his Letter of Intent, which would then give him the opportunity to play right away in Austin. If not, he will be required to sit out the 2019 season, per transfer rules.
Texas has now landed the nation’s top-two athletes of the Class of 2019 with McCoy Jordan Whittington. He’s also the fifth wide receiver in the class, joining Whittington, Kennedy Lewis, Marcus Washington and Jake Smith.
