Earlier this week it appeared Eldridge Massington was all set for USC, but when it comes to recruiting it is often said things can change on a dime.
On Tuesday morning, the Mesquite (Texas) West Mesquite Rivals250 wide receiver decided it was time to go in a different direction.
"He did it this morning," West Mesquite assistant coach Kyle Ward said. "They couldn't get him in as a mid-year anymore. He still could have come in June, but Massington wanted to get where he is going to be at mid-year so he can continue his rehab."
Massington missed his entire senior season with a torn ACL. He planned to enroll early at USC, and as he re-opens his recruitment he still plans to enroll early at his school of choice.
The 6-3, 205-pound receiver has been cleared for full speed workouts and is running routes. it is thought he will be able to participate in spring drills wherever he signs.
When Eldridge Massington committed to USC in May he was considered one of the hottest prospects in the country after receiving offers from Michigan, Nebraska, UCLA, Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma, and several others.
He is currently ranked No. 244 in the Rivals250 and No. 22 nationally among wide receivers.
