One of the state's top players on both sides of the ball is easily Fresno (Calif.) Bullard's Anthony McCoy. The athlete has been dominating at both wide receiver and defensive end but leaves little doubt what side of the ball he prefers to play at the next level.
McCoy, 6-4, 240 pounds has seen his stock rise steadily all season long and is now rated the No. 9 tight end in the country. We've heard from more than a few schools say they believe McCoy could be the top tight end prospect in the nation because of his size, speed, hands and athleticism.
"That's flattering but I really want to play receiver in college, "McCoy said. "That's all I've ever played. This year, I've played 100% receiver on offense and have a pretty good season. I finished the regular season with 54 catches for 956 yards and 13 touchdowns. I have 13 sacks on defense too but I love offense and really want a shot to play receiver in college over anywhere else."
On the recruiting front, not much has changed for McCoy since the last time we tracked him down, a little over a month ago.
"There is really only three schools I'm seriously considering," McCoy said. "USC is still my leader followed by Cal and Fresno State. I have trips set with all three and I don't think I'll take any other visits. It's really down to those three and I want to visit all three before I make my decision."
McCoy will visit Fresno State (Dec. 9) and will then visit USC the following weekend (Dec. 16). The trip to Cal is set for (Jan. 6).
