USC wide receiver Bru McCoy has been unable to practice leading up to the season, but doctors can’t seem to figure out what it is that is causing his health issues.

McCoy, a 5-star wide receiver and who is ranked by 247 as a top-10 recruit, has been battling fevers for nearly two months now. He has visited with a number of specialists and been treated for a variety of illnesses, but his father said this week that no one has been able to provide answers.

USC will not allow McCoy to return until his fevers have subsided, but head coach Clay Helton recently said McCoy is “actually getting a little better.” The receiver is also waiting to hear back from the NCAA about his eligibility, as he transferred multiple times this offseason.

McCoy enrolled at USC back in January, 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 just five months before deciding to transfer back to USC, as he reportedly did not feel comfortable at Texas.

A mystery illness is always a concern, so we can’t imagine dealing with something like that for several weeks. Hopefully McCoy is feeling better or can get some answers soon.
