McCoy Talks About His Favorites

Soon to be a senior at Harrisburg Bishop McDevitt High, LeSean McCoy is gunning for the PIAA career rushing record. He is also focusing in on choosing a college, and currently favors eight schools. Nearby Penn State made the list.

LeSean McCoy is one of the top prospects in America and one of the nation's finest backs. The senior to be from Harrisburg (Pa.) Bishop McDevit High has the numbers to prove it. Over his sophomore and junior seasons he rushed for more than 5,300 yards and 61 touchdowns. Is there any more the 6-foot, 208-pound running back can do at this level?

"My main goal is to win a state championship," said McCoy. "But I also want to break the all-time Pennsylvania state rushing record. James Mungro has it and I think I need 2,600 yards this season to break it."

In regard to scholarship offers, McCoy claims to have between "45 and 50." For now he likes Georgia, Alabama, USC, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Penn State, Ohio State and Virginia Tech.

"Georgia likes to feature the running back and they are looking for a big-time feature back.

"Alabama runs the ball big time. I could see myself there.

"Southern Cal has all that running back tradition and they have such a great thing going right now.

"OU runs the ball well and I could sit a year and then take over for Adrian Peterson.

"Tennessee loves to feature the run and I really like their offense because it is so balanced.

"Penn State has always been on me and they are only an hour and a half away. They also have some top guys coming in and they could shock some people this season.

"Ohio State loves to pound the ball and they like the bigger backs like me.

"Virginia Tech runs the ball and they have had a lot of backs drafted in the NFL lately.

"Right now I am open and just looking at the depth charts because I would really like to play early."

McCoy is not planning on camping at any schools this summer, rather he and some teammates will make some unofficial visits to different campuses. He is not sure what schools he will see over the coming weeks.
