The Texas-USC Bru-haha, as it is now known, has hit a fever pitch.
News developed over the weekend that Longhorns wide receiver Bru McCoy, who transferred to the program from USC in January, was strongly considering heading back to the Trojans. While nothing is official on that front yet, Texas is apparently sending in the big guns to, in essence, re-recruit McCoy to stay at UT.
According to Chip Brown of 247Sports, Longhorns coach Tom Herman, wide receivers coach Drew Mehringer, quarterback Sam Ehlinger and director of player development Kevin Washington are traveling to Los Angeles and will meet with McCoy and his family Wednesday afternoon. Anwar Richardson of OrangeBloods.com first reported that Herman and Co. were heading out to California to sway McCoy to stick with Texas.
Recruiting beatniks have carved out a niche for wild stories, but McCoy's heightened profile as a five-star prospect along with the blue-blood programs involved have turned this into a national one. Here's what you need to know as McCoy decides his future, and what it means for him and the programs involved.
