McCoy didn’t make his commitment to USC public until Jan. 5, but he signed a few weeks earlier, and had already started taking classes as an early enrollee. But just a few days after McCoy’s commitment went public, Kingsbury left his barely touched job at USC to become the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. It was a step up for Kingsbury, but it unsurprisingly seems to have pulled the rug out from under McCoy, who, according to ESPN, has entered the transfer portal and most likely will go to Texas.
So far, so logical. A man backs out of his commitment, and a kid—having been misled—wants to do the same. But aside from the fact that there’s no guarantee USC allows him a release, here’s the brutal, unfair line from ESPN, about a player who has never played a single snap for USC:
Kingsbury, meanwhile, will reportedly not have to sit out the 2019 season before coaching the Cardinals.
I think that the university will petition the NCAA for a waiver that will allow Bru to play immediately. From what I've read there's a pretty good chance it'll be granted... @Daniel Seahorn isn't that the case?
