McCoy is considering San Diego State, UNLV, Oregon, Michigan State, and Arizona and broke down his thoughts on all five after the game.
San Diego State: “They just got a new coach [Brian Dutcher] and I’ve been playing with the team in open gyms a lot and I’ve really enjoyed playing with those kids.”
Michigan State: “Great program, coach [Tom] Izzo is a Hall of Fame coach and Miles Bridges is staying so everybody’s been haggling me about staying with him and winning a national championship along with Jaren Jackson. It is really big possibility. Miles is a great player, Jaren’s a great player and they’re going to have a lot of players coming back that are really good so maybe I can do something to contribute to winning a national championship for Lansing.”
Arizona: “My boy ‘D’ [DeAndre Ayton] going there and that’s my bro. We played together in the EYBL and coach [Sean] Miller and them been recruiting me since the eighth grade so that’s one thing about that.”
Oregon: “Coach [Dana] Altman made it to the first Final Four in 78 years to that’s pretty epic. My brother [Dwayne Benjamin] went there and they’re producing a lot of good players, Tyler Dorsey, Jordan Bell. The development is there.”
UNLV: “Coach Marvin Menzies is a great dude, a great coach. He produces some NBA players. That’s what nobody really knows about it, but he did produce some NBA players and it’s becoming a program. If I go there maybe I can bring them back to the real Runnin’ Rebels, back in the ’90s when they were the No. 1 team in the nation.”
As for a timetable, he added, “For sure by the end of April.”
