According to the four letter network, he has been really impressee with the new staff at LBA. Do they really think he wont stay at home.....
This could be huge......
Jason Hatcher (Louisville, Ky./Trinity) officially had a change of heart and is no longer committed to USC.
Hatcher decommitted USC via twitter according to Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times.
The four-star defensive lineman has been impressed with local programs Kentucky and Louisville as of late. Both will now compete to land the ESPN 300 recruit.
UPDATE: Jason Hatcher and his family continue to come away impressed by Kentucky and its new coaching staff.
"They've been very impressive," Hatcher's mother, Donna, told Justin Rowland of CatsIllustrated.com. "They really have impressed us."
Kentucky worked its way as a legitimate contender to flip Hatcher from USC.
"In recent days there has been increased speculation that Kentucky may be in a better position than they were previously thought to be in," Rowland added.
USC, Louisville and Kentucky are all vying to land ESPN 300 defensive end Jason Hatcher.
Louisville is still chasing Hatcher despite his commitment to USC. The biggest influence in Hatcher's eventual decision may not be Louisville's coaching staff, but rather those currently committed to the program. Hatcher's high school teammates, James Quick and Reggie Bonnafon, continually try to sway the defensive end into staying in his home town.
"Oh, yeah, they’ve been grinding on me at school and around the community," Hatcher told Steve Jones of the Lexington Courier-Journal.
Hatcher also took a recent visit to Kentucky. And the Wildcats under new head coach Mark Stoops certainly make an impression on Hatcher.
"I was definitely listening to everything they said, and some of the things that stuck out was their need of D-ends and the depth charts," Hatcher said. "They don’t have many guys. And we talked a lot about position, since UK previously (under coach Joker Phillips) was a 3-4 team, and they’re going to a four-down front. That was big. Really that was it."
USC remains a solid bet to retain Hatcher's commitment.
"I’m probably about 90 to 95 percent to USC," Hatcher estimated.
