Current Commit Update: Colt McCoy

Jim Ned QB <b>Colt McCoy</b>'s comments have hit several message boards and made some newspapers, but he goes on record with Scout.com in this interview to explain it all...

Asked if he is wavering or having second thoughts about his pledge to play for the Longhorns, Colt McCoy told Scout.com, "Not really. I'm still committed to Texas. Basically, I just stated that I had some concerns about the (Texas) offense. And now that's turned into something else. But I'm still committed to UT."

His concern with the Greg Davis-coached offense centers around the team's struggles in the passing game and recent focus on the run...

"I'm a super passer," said the State's No. 26. "And, Texas' offense hasn't been throwing the ball that well."

With McCoy's ability, however, some predict a more varied passing attack with the 6-1, 185-pound gunslinger at the controls of the Longhorn O.

"That's what (the UT coaches) are telling me. And I'd like to think that is the case. But I think I'd like to look at a couple of other schools. I think it's in my best interest to hear them out."

It's fair to say, based on the comments from the prep hailing from Tuscola, that while he may not be wavering or looking to decommit, he is in fact looking around. The schools he is looking at? "LSU, Texas A&M and K-State." But the two he's most inclined to listen to at this point are the Aggies and Tigers.

"I have spoke to the A&M coaches for a long time. I always said that I would like to play for a college in Texas, so I have a relationship with a lot of the coaches on their staff. Mainly, I've been talking to (TAMU offensive coordinator) Coach (Les) Koenning."

As for the Tigers, McCoy said, "I've been talking to the recruiting coordinator (Travis Jones), (LSU head coach) Coach (Nick) Saban and (LSU offensive coordinator/quarterbacks) Coach (Jumbo) Fisher."

Any official visits in the works to those programs?

"No, I'm just talking to them (A&M, K-State, LSU coaches) right now. I'm more worried about focusing on the rest of my senior season. As far as me not being committed to Texas, that's not true. I'm just looking at a few schools."
