The USC Trojans 2018 recruiting class took a hit on Monday as 3-star wide receiver Andre Hunt announced that he would be de-committing. Hunt announced the news on Twitter.
After speaking to my parents and discussing the recruiting process I have decided to decommit from USC and reopen my recruitment. I want to thank all the coaches and fans at SC that showed me love but at this time I believe it is the best decision.

The 3-star receiver from Paraclete High School (Lancaster, Calif.), is 6-foot, 175-pounds. He is ranked as the No. 71 player in California and the No. 112 receiver in the country. Hunt helped lead the program to its second consecutive CIF championship, recording 67 catches, 1,185 yards and 18 receiving TDs this season.
While Hunt’s de-commitment isn’t ideal, the wide receiver position isn’t a huge need for the Trojans. The program is also hoping to land 5-star WR Amon-Ra St. Brown.
Hunt committed to USC in June despite having offers from schools like BYU, Colorado, Colorado State, UCLA, Utah and Washington State.
The Trojans recruiting class in ranked No. 30 in the country and currently stands at 10 commitments following Hunt’s departure. While the Trojans don’t appear to have too many commitments right now, it is thought that USC will have a more complete class by the February signing date.
