    Receiver

    I believe I saw him playing on special teams during the bowl game.

    Jayden Williams also wore No. 14 this year. Bru will play receiver next year.

    I would take a hard look at him at OLB. The Trojans can spare him there. They are loaded at WR but need a lot of help at LB. Safety too.

    I remember during an interview, he was asked about his preference and he said he wanted to play offense.

    I am happy to hear that he actually wants to play at all....

    can we confirm, did he play in the Holiday Bowl on special teams, as suggested above? I did not see him

    I thought Gomer said he was out for the season. I didn't see him play and Erik noted Jaydan Williams wears the same number on D.

    Bru did not play. I saw him walking off the field after the game, but he wasn't in uniform.

    Guy is prototype OLB material. Not so sure about the WR skills.

    Are talking bout the same guy Tx called their best WR in their spring practice?
    You know the guy they pulled a full blitz on to get him back after he decommitted from that historic Tx program ?

    You question that guys ability at WR?

    I've watched a lot of Mater Dei film since Daniels was being recruited and always thought that between he and St Brown that McCoy was the better receiver. And that was only his Junior yr.

    I meant between McCoy and St Brown, not Daniels. Sorry I wasn't clear there.

    Wise coach would put him on defense. Thst athletism and size and speed would serve him better as as a linebacker rather than a receiver. Allen Bradford comes to mind. Pete should have played him as a linebacker.

    Perfect OLB. His frame could pack on 25 lbs no problem.

    Pete tried him as a LB...the BRADFORDS of the world have to WANT to play LB...nothing a coach can do about a dude wantin' to do what he's wantin' to do...

    Fight On, FOREVER, Fight On!

    If they promise a kid he can come in as a WR....they need to let him try it. Ordering the switch will backfire. After he has tried it the kid can be asked about switching

    I agree. I went to a number of MD games at City Stadium besides watching them on TV and thought that McCoy was, well, "The Real McCoy." Strong, with good hands and speed, he simply overpowered DBs or ran by them. On several occasions, JT just turned and threw high, Bru went up and caught the ball and then dragged the defender 8-10 before help arrived. But the most impressive player on several of those occasions was a guy named Mase Funa with an unstoppable motor and who lived in the other team's backfield. I wonder what became of him? oh yeah, now I remember.

    You may well be right, but agreeing to play him at WR might have been what it took to bring him on board. It reminds me of what may be a similar example, the case of Taylor Mays. An incredible athlete, at what? 6-5, 235?, Mays had straight ahead speed and could (and did) hit like a freight train. Problem was, he and his dad Stafford saw him as a safety. With far less lateral movement and turning quickness, he was, at best, suspect in coverage. But he would have been an hellacious linebacker and blitzer. I doubt he would have come to SC if Pete had insisted on playing him other than at safety. Later, he professed shock when Pete selected Earl Thomas instead of giving him a chance to play in hometown Seattle.
