Fitts has decommitted from USC and has opened up his recruitment
REDLANDS, Calif. - It started off with a Tweet about his heart exploding and followed by a Tweet saying he had decommitted from USC. A huge surprise for all who have followed his recruitment.
"There was a development yesterday at 3:30 p.m.that totally surprised me and I called the USC coaches today to inform them that I'm decommitting and opening up my recruitment," said Kylie Fitts who was a rock-solid-USC commit. "When I told them I was decommitting, I just broke down. It is the hardest decision I've ever had to make. So, I'm going to take a step back, reevaluate things and open up my recruitment. I will take official visits, I just don't know where, yet. I'll meet with my family, my head coach and figure out the best plan for me.
"I also want to make it very clear that I am still very seriously considering USC. Before learning what I did yesterday, I was rock solid for USC."
It turns out, this decommitment is more than likely similar to WR Eldridge Massington and Fitts hinted that's the case. With the commitment of Leon McQuay III, the Trojans will be over the limit of 75 scholarship players if Fitts enrolled early.
"I'm not exactly sure what happened with Eldridge and I don't want to go into details, but it has something to with that (being asked to enroll in June instead of this week)," said Fitts. "I told USC that they are still one of my top choices, but I will now look at other schools."
We will provide more information on which schools Fitts will visit after he meets with his family and coaches at Redlands East Valley.
