Bru McCoy, a five-star wide receiver/linebacker in the class of 2019, is still open to a bunch of schools.

With the new 247Sports class of 2019 update, Bru McCoy is the No. 8 player in the country. The site's own rankings lists him as the top player in the West.

The Santa Ana native is the No. 2 composite player in California, when 247 combines its rankings with those of the other big recruiting sites. He is also the top-ranked "athlete" in the country.

McCoy is a standout for one of the nation's top high school programs, Mater Dei. As you'd expect, he has plenty of big programs after him.

Back in August, he named five programs recruiting him the hardest. USC, Washington, Cal, Ohio State and Nebraska all cracked that list.

That doesn't mean he's limited himself to those schools, however. A number of others have gotten involved.

To his credit, McCoy isn't rushing things. As an elite player, he has a ton of options, and still has plenty of time to weigh them. National Signing Day 2019 is over a year away, of course.

He spoke to 247 about where things are heading in his recruitment. He named 12 different schools when asked about the programs he is taking the closest look at.

"I know our class can take visits in the spring but I want to wait until the fall and see what the game atmosphere is like," McCoy said. "As of right now, I honestly don't have any schools locked in for visits or a school that I know will for sure get one but hopefully soon.

"The schools I'm looking hardest at right now are Oklahoma, USC, Washington, Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, Florida, UCLA, Ole Miss, Ohio State, Cal and Oregon," McCoy said. "It's early for me still and I have plenty of time to narrow things down."

At Mater Dei, McCoy shines at receiver and linebacker. At 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, he has the size to play on either side of the ball at the next level.

Right now, all seven predictions logged in the 247 crystal ball have him heading to USC. Still, based on what he's said, it's far too early to name anyone the favorite in this one.
