On defense he had 18 tackles and two interceptions. He did all this playing for former Mustang, Okla., head coach Todd Dilbeck. A couple of weeks ago, Dilbeck brought McCoy and two teammates, linebacker Jason Hensley and offensive tackle Jordan White, to Stillwater to check things out.
"It was amazing," said McCoy. "It was real nice, everything! The facilities are as nice as I've ever seen."
McCoy has seen interest from Oklahoma State and Tulsa, and he said just this week North Carolina has called inquiring.
"I did not grow up an Arkansas fan, definitely not Arkansas," he said which is atypical of most Arkansas high school football players. "I guess I kind of grew up a Florida fan. It wasn't Arkansas!"
McCoy said he has not really thought of what he is looking for in a school and he is in the early stages of recruiting. He did say he will attend some camps in June and going back to Oklahoma State is on his agenda.
Hensley may also be a legitimate prospect at linebacker as he is listed at 6-3, 210 pounds and last season tallied 102 tackles, 79 of those unassisted. He also had six sacks and one fumble caused.
Dilbeck has been to several Oklahoma State coaching clinics and the former Rice University assistant is a big fan of the same offense that Oklahoma State runs with new offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen.
