USC five-star freshman Bru McCoy is no longer a part of the Trojans' football program, according to a report.

McCoy, one of the top 10 recruits in the 2019 class, had enrolled early at USC, though some coaching movement had him re-thinking his decision.

The five-star wide receiver was close with USC's former offensive coordinator, Tee Martin, and was a fan of Kliff Kingsbury, though neither coach is still with the program.

McCoy has reportedly decided to transfer to Texas.

USC 247 first reported news of his transfer decision:

According to sources close to Bru McCoy, the five-star athlete will transfer from USC to Texas.

McCoy is expected to be in Austin by next week. He and the Texas coaching staff anticipate he’ll have to sit out a year but they will apply for a waiver hoping to avoid that situation.

McCoy was all set to commit to Texas before the 2019 All-American Bowl but was convinced to commit to USC by former Trojan offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury at the last minute. After Kingsbury was hired away to be the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, McCoy apparently soured on the idea of wearing cardinal and goal.

Rivals.com had reported earlier in the day that McCoy was mulling a transfer.

Stay tuned for an official announcement.
