So what does Denzel make of this attention?
"It feels good. I'm getting a lot of hand written letters. Charlie Weis of Notre Dame wrote me one the other day. I grew up liking them. I'll sit down and see who's giving me a lot of mail and then decide about a list. I've already been to the Georgia Tech-Jacksonville State game, UGA-Central Michigan, and the Clemson-NC State game. They were all fun. They all gave me a lot of love. I met all the head coaches."
Does he envision an early commitment?
"A lot of people ask me that. It's a possibility. I want to sit down, explore my options, and enjoy this time. I love playing high school football. It's a possibility though."
McCoy is being recruited by some schools as a defensive tackle and some as a defensive end. Does he have a preference?
"I like D-tackle, but D-end wouldn't be bad. Maybe I'd like to play both. That would be cool to learn both responsibilities and do both."
McCoy's Northview HS football team is off to a rough 0-3 start but he says they're getting better every game. "We have a new system, a new coach. Once people start buying in to the new system, we'll start clicking. We're getting better, people are buying in."
