AUSTIN, Texas (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The Texas Longhorns offense is getting an upgrade.
The football team confirms top wide receiver prospect Bru McCoy will transfer to Texas from Southern California.
McCoy submitted his financial aid paperwork Friday, Texas spokesman John Bianco said.
The 6-foot-2, 205-pound McCoy had 78 catches for 1,428 yards and 18 touchdowns last season for Mater Dei (Calif.) High School. McCoy, who is from Santa Ana, California, signed with USC in December and enrolled in classes there for the spring semester.
He opted to leave after former Trojans offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury left for the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals after just a few weeks on the job.
McCoy had placed his name in the NCAA transfer database. He now will likely have to appeal to the NCAA to be allowed to be eligible to play in the 2019 season.
