Okay, maybe that wasn't exactly what Coach John Bunting envisioned while signing the scholarship offer, but it most certainly helps their cause as McCoy's dad grew up 20 miles from campus and considers the Tar Heels his "hometown team."
Despite his family's proximity to Chapel Hill, McCoy has never stepped foot on campus, though is strongly considering doing so in the near future.
"I have never been on their campus, but I might go there over the summer just to visit," remarked McCoy, who plans to skip the camping scene this summer.
McCoy, who besides the Heels has offers from Boston College, Connecticut, Miami, Maryland, Ohio State, Pittsburgh, and Syracuse, currently doesn't claim a leader, but admits he is only considering his offering schools.
During his junior campaign, McCoy racked up 120 tackles and five sacks on his way to earning All-Conference honors.
