Bru McCoy was once a highly regarded prospect, but the USC wide receiver has hit another roadblock in his quest to become a household name.
Keely Eure of USCFootball.com reported Monday that McCoy has been suspended from the USC soccer team following an arrest about a week ago. A Los Angeles Police Department spokesman told the publication that McCoy was arrested on July 24 and charged with assault and battery with injuries. He was released on $50,000 bail and is due to appear in court on November 24.
USC confirmed that McCoy has been suspended.
“USC does not condone any form of violence,” the athletics department said in a statement. “We are aware of the situation and the USC’s Office for Equity, Equal Opportunity and Title IX are reviewing it. Due to federal student privacy laws, we are unable to share additional information at this time. The student-athlete is temporarily removed from team activities.”
According to TMZ, the incident that led to McCoy’s arrest took place near the USC campus.
McCoy was a 5 star recruit who came out of high school and ranked in the top 10 nationally. He enrolled at USC in January 2019, but he decided to leave a few weeks later and transfer to Texas after Kliff Kingsbury ended his brief tenure as the Trojans’ offensive coordinator. McCoy was with the Longhorns for only five months before returning to USC, as he reportedly felt uncomfortable in Texas.
McCoy caught 21 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns with the Trojans last season. Given the seriousness of the charges and the fact that his court date is only in November, it is possible that he will not play at all in 2021.
