The 6-foot-4, 290-pound defensive tackle said he committed to Minnesota having never visited. He only was able to do virtual tours, including one earlier this month that helped seal the deal.

The Gophers have been working hard for McCoy since they offered back over the summer.

Early National Signing Day for college football is Wednesday.
