Five-star freshman wide receiver Bru McCoy appears to be heading back to the school he transferred from earlier this year.

McCoy, one of the top recruits in the 2019 class, enrolled early at USC, but transferred to Texas shortly after he arrived to the Trojans' campus. Now, he is reportedly heading back.

Reports surfaced on Monday of McCoy's intent to leave Texas and transfer back to USC ahead of the 2019 season. The specific reasons for the move are unclear, though a decision has reportedly been made. is reporting that McCoy has informed USC head coach Clay Helton that he wants to come back, as long as a scholarship is available.

McCoy, a 6-foot-2 wide receiver, is a California native. He played at Mater Dei and is from Santa Ana, California.

The five-star recruit is ranked the No. 9 overall prospect in the 2019 class by 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

McCoy's transfer would be a massive addition for USC's 2019 class, and a tough loss for Texas, though it's not official - yet, anyway.
