I stood on the stairs of Yard House restaurant in downtown San Antonio earlier this month and had a long phone call with Horace McCoy the father of five-star athlete Bruce McCoy.
dinner, I just heard a rumor. That McCoy would be involved with the USC in the All-American Bowl a few days later, but if the then Kliff Kingsbury did another off-season job, McCoy would consider joining a transfer portal for his other favorite – Texas. Horace McCoy did not confirm or deny the rumors, but laughed and said it was not the plan at the moment.
A few weeks later, just that happened. Santa Dane Prospect (California) Mater Dei decided to move from USC and head to Texas after Kingsbury left the USC a few days after McCoy's commitment to take over Arizona Cardinals' lead
. McCoy's decision has introduced a new recruitment rule that will determine which class will be added to five-star ̵
McCoy's rule, which is anyone who transfers between the early signing or early enrollment period and the second signing period, is counted as the class to which they are transferred, "said Rivals.com National Recruiting Director Mike Farrell . 19659002] "For the first time we know this has happened. This is a product not only from the early signing period, because even if it was injured, it would have happened. It's important because for regular transfers they have to go to JUCO to get a new rating for them because they are so far away from the middle school days. In this case, we have just received a new rating for it in early January.
"We know what we're doing here as a player, and because the transfer has happened so quickly since it was signed so far, it would be funny for us not to count it in the Texas class. weeks. "
The breakdown of the new rule reads as follows: If you are transferred between the first signing period and the second signing period, it will be counted towards the second grade, if it passes after the end of the February signing period, the assessment must to be done on a case-by-case basis will, where they originally signed but those that occurred when there was only one signing period and it was regular months after the day of signing.
junior college and thus do not count for the class of the new school , because there was no new opportunity to evaluate them and they were so far away from high school
This is the first and requires a new procedure
"This is a new situation that is so fast, this is a child who just announced the USC recorded in the USC and will now be in Texas in a few weeks with ed his commitment makes no sense to keep him in the class of USC – said Farrell.
"This is a brand new area for us. This has never happened to the best of our knowledge.
