Texas QB Jamie McCoy Says "I Do."

Midland Lee QB <b>Jamie McCoy</b> recently pulled the commitment trigger in favor of a Big 12 South school. The 6-2, 200-pounder catches up with Scout.com to talk about his decision to end the suspense early, what position he was recruited to play and more...

"Texas A&M offered about a week ago," Jamie McCoy told Scout.com. "I also had an offer from New Mexico. But I just decided to commit to Texas A&M and get it over with. I had been talking to them since Spring Training. I felt like that was where I wanted to go so I did it and now I can concentrate on the rest of my football season."

With his ability as a quarterback and wide receiver, he could wind up playing either position for the Maroon and White.

Aggie cornerbacks coach Chris Thurmond, who was "pleased and excited" to hear the news of McCoy's decision, told the Midland Lee QB that they wanted him at quarterback or that he could also play receiver in their system.

"I think we're just going to see where things go when I get there," McCoy said.

Other reasons the senior from West Texas opted for A&M?

"They're looking really good this year. Every year, they're improving. Their record is improving. They have a great coaching staff and it just seems like they have the program moving in the right direction.

Additional Note: McCoy suffered a torn lateral meniscus injury last year during basketball season. He was timed at (or about) a 4.6 (40) before having surgery. So with the surgery behind him (had surgery this past summer) and a month and-a-half of rehab complete, not to mention looking just fine on the gridiron of late, McCoy said, "Honestly, I don't know how fast I am now. I haven't been timed. But I think I'm a lot faster now."

Dennis Franchione and Gang add another body to the QB picture, but they add a kid with the skills to play elsewhere should his development proceed in that direction...
