Former Southern California wide receiver Bru McCoy announced on social media Tuesday that he has committed to transfer to Tennessee.
McCoy, who has played just one season of college football and sat out two others, was in the transfer portal for the third time.
McCoy was a five-star recruit in the Class of 2019 out of Ranchos Palos Verde, Calif., ranked the #9 overall player in the class in the 247Sports composite.
He enrolled at USC in January 2019 but changed his mind and transferred to Texas. Less than six months later, he had decided to transfer back to USC.
McCoy sat out the 2019 season at USC because of an illness before compiling 21 catches for 236 yards and two touchdowns as a redshirt freshman in the pandemic-shortened 2020 season.
He never got into a game during 2021 following an arrest on suspicion of domestic violence. Charges against McCoy eventually were dropped, but the Trojans never reinstated him.
The Volunteers went 7-6 (4-4 SEC) in 2021 and are being projected as a potential preseason top 25 team for 2022, with last year’s starting quarterback Hendon Hooker (2,945 yards, 31 touchdowns, three picks) among those returning.
