It's back to square one for New Port Richey (Fla.) Gulf quarterback Alton Voss.
The 6-foot-2, 213-pound signal caller has had West Virginia and Alabama at the top of his list at various points during his recruitment, but now it's a wide-open race again.
The Crimson Tide was in the driver's seat as recently as two weeks ago, but Bama decided its needs were better met with Tampa Plant quarterback Robert Marve, so they never extended an offer to Voss.

The Mountaineers had an offer on the table, but also had offers out to a couple of others who took them up on the invite sooner.
"It's back to square one," Voss said. "West Virginia took two quarterbacks. I am looking for a school that has a quarterback situation that fits me."
So being back to wide-open, Voss will start checking out other schools. This week, Voss will head to Mississippi to check out Mississippi State and Ole Miss.
The Bulldogs have an offer on the table and Voss is looking forward to checking out Starkville.
"My coach is always telling me that the SEC is the best conference in the nation," Voss said. "He says that Mississippi State is a good program that all they are missing is a good quarterback.
"I am going in there with an open mind. I am looking forward to meeting with the coaches and talking with the players. I am looking forward to checking out the town."
After spending time in Starkville, he will head over to Oxford to check out the Rebels.
"I don't know as much about Ole Miss," Voss said. "I know that (fellow class of 2007 quarterback) Joe Weatherford went out there and did well, so I think I should.
"We are both on the same level."
Voss plans to make a trip to the Carolinas in July.
"I am going to N.C. State's quarterback camp," he said. "(State head coach) Chuck Amato has offered me as an athlete, but I wanted to go up there and show that I can do it as a quarterback.
"Then I am going to go to South Carolina and just see what happens."
On July 21, Voss will attend camp at Florida for the Gators "Friday Night Lights" prospect camp.
"They only invited six quarterbacks from across the country and one of them is me, so I am going to go," he said.
Voss passed for 1,300 yards and 12 touchdowns and rushed for another 1,200 in 2005.
