2013 four-star defensive end Jason Hatcher announced via Twitter on Tuesday that he is no longer committed to Lane Kiffin and USC.

2013 four-star defensive end Jason Hatcher is no longer a future Trojan.

Hatcher tweeted Tuesday evening, "@ROCK_NATION_6: I official de-committed from USC #WideOpen."

The Louisville (Ky.) Trinity product committed to USC in July, telling FOX Sports NEXT he wanted to get the decision out of the way and felt USC was a school he "would be comfortable with for the next four years."

Hatcher was one of six USC commits on campus over the weekend for an official visit.

He took an official to Kentucky on Jan. 11 and is scheduled to take official visits to both Florida and Louisville in the coming weeks.

Hatcher is the sixth 2013 recruit to decommit from USC.
