According to USCFootball.com, Jason Hatcher has recommitted to Lane Kiffin and the Southern Cal program. Hatcher gave USC a verbal pledge over the summer, but abruptly de-committed last Tuesday, via his Twitter account.
Hatcher decided to recommit tonight after an in home visit from USC head coach Lane Kiffin and defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast. Recruiting coordniator Ed Orgeron and Hatcher’s main recruiter Tee Martin were also in attendance.
The local prospect had an official visit scheduled to Louisville on Feb. 2, but that visit was cancelled late last week. Hatcher was reportedly considering Kentucky as well.
Strange and unexpected things always happen on National Signing Day, but I’d say Hatcher is as good as gone.
Keeping homegrown talent like Hatcher would be nice, but Louisville football will be just fine. I wish him the best on the west coast.
