Earlier today, USC five-star wide receiver signee Bru McCoy made history. He became the first player who just signed with a school to enter the NCAA transfer portal.

McCoy enrolled early at USC, starting classes a couple of weeks ago. However, after changes on the coaching staff, including offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury becoming head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, he's leaving the Trojans.

USC247 first reported the news of McCoy's decision to transfer. They also reported he is likely to transfer to Texas.

Tonight, 247Sports' Gerard Martinez reported that USC will grant McCoy a full release. That enables him to enroll anywhere without restrictions.

However, McCoy will still have to petition the NCAA to be granted immediate eligibility at his new destination.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound McCoy is the No. 1 athlete and No. 9 overall player in the 2019 class, according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

He would become the second five-star to choose Texas in the 2019 cycle, along with athlete Jordan Whittington.
