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...
