Barry Ware and UCLA have parted ways but the Corona (Calif.) Centennial wide receiver is hopeful that other programs will get involved in the recruiting process.
This just happened within the last day so Ware is going to be patient for a while and then start setting up other official visits as he also focuses on finishing out his senior season.
The early returns have been positive and at least two major programs have already reached out according to Ware, a three-star prospect by Rivals.com.
"I'm going to de-commit and keep my options open with the recruiting process," Ware said.
"It's whoever comes. I want to see which schools come in now that I've de-committed. A lot were interested but they didn't feel like they could compete with UCLA because they were close to home.
"There are schools that have contacted me. Texas A&M is one of them and Oregon is another."
Washington State and Utah were two other teams that offered him early in the process but Ware said pretty much every school backed off after his commitment to UCLA.
Now that the recruiting process is open again, the Corona Centennial standout said he wants to hear from all the programs interested. Once his senior season wraps up within the next few weeks, Ware will take a much more serious look at scheduling visits and finding a new home.
"I'm going to wait out this week and pray a couple new offers come in and then I'm going to start setting up my visits," Ware said.
