McCoy Picks Up Second Offer

The second offer arrived Friday for 2015 offensive lineman Erik McCoy, who's getting interest from a couple more schools.

Lufkin (Tx.) 2015 offensive lineman Erik McCoy picked up his second offer Friday afternoon from Arkansas State. The Red Wolves join Houston on McCoy's offer list, which is expected to grow as the spring progresses.

McCoy has had the Houston offer since Sept. 1. He tweeted the news of the Arkansas State offer just after noon Friday, noting that co-offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Glen Elarbee extended the offer.

The 6-foot-4, 297-pound offensive lineman plays tackle for Lufkin, but could move inside to guard at the next level. He said different schools are recruiting him as both.

Oklahoma State, Missouri, and Texas Tech are also interested in McCoy, who may attend a couple of upcoming junior days.

"I'm thinking Louisiana-Lafayette and possibly Oklahoma State," said McCoy, who also had an invitation to a recent Missouri junior day event.

Oklahoma State offensive line coach Bob Connelly has kept in touch with McCoy, who has also stayed in contact with Texas Tech safeties coach Trey Haverty and Missouri's "Coach Kool," defensive line coach Craig Kuligowski.

Lufkin head coach Todd Quick recently told Scout.com that McCoy could fit just about anywhere along the line at the college level.

"When (college coaches) walk in the room, he's the first one they see because he passes the eye test," Quick said. "He's got really good feet. We've got him playing tackle, but I think he can play guard or anything else for somebody."

McCoy is one of at least three potential FBS signees that Lufkin will have on offense this coming fall. Receiver Keke Coutee has three Big 12 offers, while receiver Terry Mark holds a Houston offer. Quarterback Trey Cumbie is leaning toward a college baseball career right now, but is a college-caliber passer.
