Former USC wideout Bru McCoy announced his commitment to Tuesday evening. 

McCoy entered the transfer portal back in mid January and the Vols immediately reached out. McCoy took an official visit in March and since then, it always seemed like more a matter of when, not if, he would announce for the Vols.

“There were a lot of factors that went in to his decision,” McCoy’s father Horace said. “A big one was the culture at Tennessee. We met the players and the entire coaching staff and everything they talked up lined up when we saw them in action.

“We watched a practice and just saw how the players and coaches interact on and off the field. He wanted to be around a positive culture in a great learning environment with players who want to be there and it just felt like home for Bru right away.”

The offensive scheme was another big plus for McCoy.
