To make a long story short, SC WR McCoy was arrested on July 24th, 2021 in a domestic violence case. The next month, it was found that he would not face criminal charges. SC's Title IX office wanted to review the case on their own, however, before they chose to lift his suspension from the team. The USC Title IX case has now been dismissed, and the fan favorite Cravens hasn't necessarily been impressed with how this has all gone down on the USC side of things:
McCoy entered the transfer portal last month, so perhaps this case being dismissed lowers his chances of leaving the program. It's unclear what is going to happen with a new coaching staff in place. Cravens at least believes that McCoy deserves an apology for the way that Cravens believes he was wrongfully treated in this process. He continued below:
Bru McCoy would make USC football a better team if he were to stay.
Bru McCoy was injured for his first regular season, and ineligible for the postseason once he finally became healthy due to transfer rules. McCoy signed with USC football, transferred to Texas, and then transferred back, so he had to wait a year to play.
In his second season, he didn't put up great numbers, but he had to compete for targets with all of USC stud wide receivers Tyler Vaughns, Amon-Ra St. Brown, and Drake London. He was the clear No. 4, however, which would mean that he is potentially good enough to be the No. 1 receiver on the team this year if he comes back.
McCoy racked up 236 yards on 21 catches and scored two touchdowns in the six-game 2020 season. Those aren't jaw-dropping numbers, but he passed the eye test, and again, had insane competition on the receiver depth chart and pecking order. If McCoy, who was the No. 1 Athlete recruit in the country (No. 9 overall player) in the 2019 class, would likely build on those numbers if he can run it back with USC next season.
