Long Beach Poly quarterback Matt Corral, who is ranked one of the top 10 players in the nation, said Saturday he was no longer committed to USC.
“I did decommit from USC,” Corral said in a statement to USA Today. “I have a lot of love for (USC coaches Clay and Tyson Helton) and the USC football program. I also thank them for all the knowledge they have shared with me.”
Corral’s stock increased this month after he was invited to the finals of the Elite 11 quarterback camp. But there have always been questions about how he and highly touted quarterback Jack Sears, who will be a freshman at USC this season, would co-exist.
USC responded to Corral’s decision Saturday by offering a scholarship to quarterback Jack Tuttle of San Marcos, Calif. But Tuttle said he was firm in his commitment to Utah.
Corral is ranked the second-best quarterback and seventh-best player overall in the nation by Rivals.com.
