Tennessee Volunteers wide receiver Bru McCoy has made a decision on the 2024 NFL Draft. He has officially decided to return to Knoxville for the 2024 season, per his Instagram account.

McCoy has been a gigantic part of the Tennessee offense since arriving on campus, so his return to the program will be more than welcome. He missed most of the second half of the Tennessee season with an ankle injury, after being carted off the field during Tennessee’s 41-20 win over South Carolina.

During the 2023 season, where McCoy played in less than five full games, the star wide receiver tallied 17 receptions for 217 yards and a touchdown. In the season prior in Knoxville, McCoy caught 52 passes for 667 yards and four touchdowns.

Moving forward with quarterback Nico Iamaleava, McCoy will be hoping to develop a tremendous rapport with his signal caller. Tennessee could have one of the more potent offenses in the SEC, and college football in general, if he’s able to do so.

Time will tell, but one thing is for sure, Tennessee is elated to have Bru McCoy back for the 2024 season. The Volunteers will be hoping to make a push for the College Football Playoff with their star wide receiver back on campus.
