On the first big official visit date of the spring next weekend, the Texas Longhorns will also host Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei athlete Bru McCoy on an unofficial visit, according to Horns247.
The 6’3, 215-pounder is a target who could increase in importance if the Horns miss out on prospects like Garrett Wilson or Elijah Higgins. Since McCoy was offered by Texas in October, he’s not a new prospect on the Longhorns radar and the presence of fellow Californians Cameron Rising and De’Gabriel Floyd on campus and in the 2019 recruiting class can only help the staff’s recruiting efforts.
Still, with close to 25 offers from the top programs nationally and a top-10 national ranking, McCoy can go anywhere in the country that he wants. Right now, the perception is that USC is the overwhelming favorite, but Oklahoma hosted McCoy on an official visit last weekend and has been a longtime factor recruiting California.
The bottom line is that this unofficial visit could help lead to an official visit later in the process and those are the necessary steps towards actually contending in McCoy’s recruitment. So, one step at a time.
