One of the tops recruits from the 2019 class is on the move. Earlier this week it was reported that five-star athlete recruit Bru McCoy was leaving the USC Trojan football program after Kliff Kingsbury left his position as the school's offensive coordinator to become the new head coach for the Arizona Cardinals.

McCoy signed with the Trojans during the Early Signing Period and arrived on campus for the spring semester. Just two weeks later he added his name to the transfer portal and USC gifted him a release from his National Letter of Intent.

So, where is he going? According to college football insider Pete Thamel, McCoy filed his financial aid papers with the University of Texas.

He's going to Austin.

McCoy was the No. 1 athlete recruit in the 2019 class and the No. 9 recruit overall. He was between USC and Texas when he made his initial collegiate decision.

The report states McCoy will begin classes at Texas next week. While this is a huge step in his transfer process, there's another major hurdle McCoy needs to clear in order to see the field in 2019.

After enrolling early at USC, McCoy needs to be granted a hardship waiver from the NCAA in order to gain eligibility for the upcoming college football season.
