McCoy is ranked the No. 8 player in the 2017 class. He averaged 17.7 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocks on the 2016 Nike circuit, earning All-EYBL third-team honors.
The 6-foot-10 San Diego (Calif.) Cathedral Catholic star has already taken official visits to Arizona, Oregon and UNLV. He is slated to officially visit Michigan State this weekend, as reported by Scout.
MSU already has a pair of big man commitments, from 5-star recruit Jaren Jackson Jr. and 4-star recruit Xavier Tillman, but the staff would love to add a third in McCoy.
