McCoy finds a home at tight end

Junior Jamie McCoy has bounced around from position to position during his time at Texas A&M. Originally, McCoy headed to College Station as a quarterback from Midland Lee High School, but just two years later he was moved to wide receiver.

With new head coach Mike Sherman taking over in Aggieland before spring drills, McCoy got another change. This time he was moving to tight end. At first, McCoy wasn't exactly sure how to take the spot where the carousel ride stopped, but now he sees it as his final destination.

And one that might work out quite perfectly for the junior.

"With (Sherman) I was like I'll do whatever you need me to do, but with my teammates I was like, dang they're moving me to tight end. It was the day before spring ball, but now I'm embracing it and looking forward to it," McCoy said. "It might be the hardest (change I've made) because of the things I'm being asked to do, but I wouldn't give it up. I like it and I enjoy doing it. It's a good fit I think."

In the spring, McCoy quickly became one of the top targets in the passing game, and this August has already been mentioned by pretty much everybody as the early pick for top playmaker in the passing game.
