Another McCoy at Texas?

Graham quarterback Case McCoy is one of the fastest rising junior prospects in the state of Texas after throwing for 2,226 yards and 17 touchdowns in 2008. The 6-2, 175-pound signal caller is closing in on 10 offers and the Longhorns could be next.

The Texas Longhorns hold their first junior day on February 8 hosting many of the top prospects in the state of Texas and beyond. On Thursday, Burnt Orange Beat learned that one of the prospects that will be in Austin on February 8 is Graham quarterback Case McCoy.

The 6-2, 175-pound quarterback has already received offers from the likes of Texas A&M, Florida State, Auburn, Arizona and Colorado State among others with the Longhorns and Florida Gators in hot pursuit.

Like Texas, Florida has extended a junior day invite and appears close to offering the fast rising junior signal caller.

McCoy has put together back-to-back seasons of 2,000 yards or more for the Graham Steers. As a sophomore, the then 6-2, 165-pounder threw for 2,008 yards and 22 touchdowns earning all-district honors.

He followed up his productive sophomore campaign by completing 168 of 285 passes for 2,226 yards and 17 touchdowns which was not only good for all-district honors, but AP 3A honorable mention all-state honors.

McCoy's best game of the 2008 season came in a 59-41 win against the Brownwood Lions in 2-3A play completing 16 of 21 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns as well as rushing for 56 yards and a score.

The junior also threw for 286 yards and two touchdowns, completing 23 of 37 passes, in a 31-24 loss to Sweetwater in district play.

In non-district action against Iowa Park, McCoy completed 17 of 23 passes for 213 yards and a career high five touchdowns as well as rushing for 42 yards in the Steers 41-24 victory.
