Former USC receiver Bru McCoy will have a sixth season in college, stays at Tennessee

Former USC wide receiver Bru McCoy, now at Tennessee, will return for the 2024 season rather than enter the NFL draft, he announced Tuesday on Instagram.

“Can’t wait Run it back next year, thank you Vol Nation for all the love and Support,” McCoy wrote. “I love this team, staff, and University & look forward to giving my all, one more time!”

Vols Wire had more on the story.

Before Tennessee played in the Citrus Bowl against Iowa, McCoy called Josh Heupel and Kelsey Pope to tell the Vols the good news.

“They were excited and just as excited as I am,” McCoy said. “I think more than anything we are just glad we get the opportunity to do something because we all see that there is something special we could do in the next year. This next year, even this year I thought we had a chance to win the SEC and make a run at it. I think this next year we have and even better chance. There is just excitement because everyone wants to go live that dream out.”

McCoy was expected to enter the 2024 NFL draft, but that came into question after he suffered a season-ending ankle injury against South Carolina on Sept. 30.

McCoy, a USC transfer and former five-star prospect, was the Vols’ go-to receiver in the middle third of the field.

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound receiver had 17 catches for 217 yards and one touchdown this season for the Vols. In 2022, he had 52 receptions for 667 yards and four TDs.
