On Thursday night Brandon McCoy took to Twitter and announced his final five schools. San Diego State made the cut and is still under consideration by the 2017 Cathedral Catholic (CA) big man. The 5-star, 6-10 McCoy's list also includes Arizona, Michigan State, Oregon, and UNLV.
It was dicey on whether the Aztecs would make McCoy's final five when he planned his official visits. He scheduled to visit all the schools on his list, except San Diego State. It is unclear if he will use an official on the Aztecs, since they are the local school and he has made it on campus more than once. McCoy visited Arizona (10/8), UNLV (10/28), Oregon (11/11) and will visit Michigan State this weekend (11/18).
Getting McCoy is still an uphill battle for the Aztecs. According to 247Sports's Crystal Ball, Oregon (43%) recently became the favorite to land him. They are followed by Arizona (29%), Michigan State (21%), and UNLV (7%). Our Recruiting Tracker has the Aztecs with a 5% chance of landing McCoy.
