The latest football prospect to give USF a commitment for the 2012 recruiting class has backed off that verbal pledge.

Stephenson (Ga.) High tight end Josh Parris, who committed to the Bulls a little more than two weeks ago, said Tuesday a misunderstanding with the Bulls coaching staff over what position he would play in college has led to him opening up the recruiting process again.

“They wanted me to play fullback, and I thought I was going in as a tight end,” Parris said via text message.

Parris, who had scholarship offers from the likes of Virginia, Virginia Tech, Vanderbilt, Louisville, Boston College, Mississippi, Syracuse and Southern Miss at the time he announced his commitment, said he is still considering the Bulls.

“They are still in the mix,” Parris said, “but now I have to see more options just in case.”
