Wharton QB Chase Litton decommits from USF

After quickly gaining many of the Tampa Bay area’s top recruits, first-year head coach Willie Taggert and the University of South Florida football team has just as quickly lost one of those top recruits.
Wharton senior quarterback Chase Litton, one of the state’s top QB recruits, said Friday evening via Twitter he was decommitting from USF and exploring his recruiting options.
“I want to apologize to USF but I will be decommitting and opening my recruitment up for my senior year.” Litton tweeted at about 7 p.m. on Friday evening.
Litton, who, according to recruiting sites, is in Gainesville at Florida this weekend, committed to USF on June 17, but still has other offers from LSU, FIU and Marshall.
Litton, who was the first-team quarterback on last season’s Tribune all-Hillsborough County team, passed for 2,738 yards and 23 touchdowns while leading the Wildcats to a 8-3 record in 2012. He said last month that committing to his hometown USF “just felt right.”
Litton would have joined a team that will be crowded at the quarterback position, as both Bobby Eveld and Matt Floyd return from the Bulls’ 3-9 season last year. Plus, Penn State transfer Steven Bench will be joining the team, as well as incoming freshman Mike White of Fort Lauderdale University.
Taggert’s first recruiting class still includes local standouts such as Tampa Catholic wide receiver Zach Benjamin, Bradenton Manatee defensive tackle Derrick Calloway, Freedom defensive back Nate Godwin, Hillsborough linebacker Nigel Harris, Robinson defensive tackle Bruce Hector, Countryside defensive end Mike Love, Sarasota Booker defensive end Eric Mayes, Jesuit offensive lineman Cameron Ruff, St. Petersburg Northeast fullback Auggie Sanchez and Plant linebacker Mitchell Wright.
