I swear people just sit around and make up stuff about me, McCoy laughed. Theres always some kind of story about me out there.
The latest rumors had his family relocating to Scottsdale, Ariz., to be closer to his older brother LeRon McCoy, who is a rookie wide receiver with the Arizona Cardinals, thus making USC the team to beat.
I can tell you my family isnt going anywhere, the Bishop McDevitt standout said.
Often when people talk about McCoy and his favorites, Penn State is excluded. Has his interest in the Nittany Lions cooled?
Nah, not at all, theyre in my top five, he said. I probably wont take an official visit there, because I can see them anytime I want to. Im hoping to get there for the Ohio State game Oct. 8.
The rest of his top five has yet to be finalized, but Virginia Tech, USC and Penn State are in it. I have the Virginia Tech visit set and Im going to USC for their homecoming. Im not sure of the exact date.
A few weeks ago, McCoy and his Bishop McDevitt teammates played a game in State College. McCoy took the time to take a walk-through at Penn State.
Yes, I did go to Penn State for a walk-through, he said. I mainly just talked to the coaches there.
McCoy was very excited about his recent selection to the U.S. Army All-American team.
It felt really good to be honored as one of the best players in the country, he said.
