    McCoy hits The Opening in Texas this weekend with several other USC targets.

    Here's an excerpt from an article published today:

    McCoy intends to choose his college in January at the All-American Bowl, which gives him a little more than six months to pick from a list of contenders consisting of Texas, Oregon, USC, Washington, Alabama, Oklahoma, Florida State and UCLA. Of those, the Trojans are considered the prohibitive favorites. It's closest to home, and his idol, Reggie Bush, once played there. Even now, he wears No. 5 in Bush's honor. It's also where his friends St. Brown and Daniels chose to play, and Daniels is confident he can persuade McCoy to join them once more. "I'd put money on it," Daniels says.

    We have to be very thankful we got JT, he is the gift that keeps on giving. And to those who still say kids don’t remember Reggie Bush, here is kid that wants to pay homage to his number!
    Fight On!

    Yep.

    Even when the defense knows the ball is coming his way, he still manages to make the catch.

    Bruiser wearing number 5, making catches when the defense knows JT's throwing it his way, throw in a Juju-esque stiff-arm, that's a nice vision. Anyone know what his 40 time is?

    Bru ran a 4.62 at the Nike Opening LA Regional back in March.

    A 4.62 is a respectable 40 time especially for a bigger WR with his athleticism. I don't think anybody is expecting McCoy to be a burner out there. He's perfectly suited to be that redzone/possession/clutch WR.

    Those are all positive attributes.

    But McCoy can do more, and will make the big, downfield plays too.

    He's got a lot of JuJu Smith-Schuster in him . . . the same physical frame, power, competitiveness for the ball in the air, and ability to adjust to the ball.

    JuJu ran a 4.6 as an HS senior, and still made a ton of long plays for SC.

    And like JuJu who got faster (ran a 4.54 at the NFL combine), Bru will get a little faster too as he matures.

    With the switch and combo routes that SC runs, as well as their penchant for getting mis-matches by motioning outside WRs to the slot position, McCoy will have the same opportunity to make the plays that JuJu did.

    This is where I think speed is overrated. JuJu, Marqise, they weren’t blazing fast - and not particularly tall either - but their tenacity on the field and the ability to get open elevated them to AA status, and to the next level. 4.55-4.6 is plenty fast enough for a WR, because the 4.4 speed will rarely become actual factors in-game, if it doesn’t come with precise route-running, moxy, or ability to physically get open. This is why I see guys like Amon-Ra as a “can’t miss” type - his route running is already at veteran college level, is fiery competitive, and his as sure-handed as they come.

    Bru measures favorably to JuJu or Marqise, and displays similar on-field personality. He fights for the ball extremely well in the air, has great hands, and isn’t afraid to block. His route-running still needs to improve, and I think he can improve a great deal by focusing on one position. He’s obviously a must-get.
