Will LeSean McCoy sign next week?

Rivals100 running back LeSean McCoy transferred from Harrisburg (Pa.) Bishop McDevitt to New Berlin (N.Y.) Milford Academy earlier this month. Recently there has been some speculation on whether the 5-foot-11, 204-pounder with 4.4-second speed would make a commitment on Signing Day to either Penn State or Virginia Tech. Is McCoy going to sign or does he plan to wait?

"LeSean has told me he isn't planning to sign with anybody on Signing Day, at least right now," said Milford head coach Bill Chaplick. "He sees no advantage to signing since he's going to be here through Signing Day next year. Instead, he just plans to continue the recruiting process and hopes to enroll in August 2007."

Lots of schools have continued to show interest in McCoy.

"LeSean has been in contact with Penn State, Virginia Tech, Miami, Southern Cal, Tennessee, Michigan State and others," he said. "There are plenty of teams that would love to sign him, but he doesn't feel that is necessary at this point."

Meanwhile, the No. 7 running back in the country has taken to his new school.

"Since he arrived at Milford, LeSean has been 100% focused on academics," he said. "He hasn't really talked much about recruiting at all."

McCoy at one time was rated the No. 1 running back in the country, but he broke his ankle early in the season and is still recovering. Reports confirm that the recovery is going well.
