Batiste would commit to the Aztecs on an unofficial visit in August and assumed that was it for the recruiting process.
"I got a call from one of the coaches tonight and they pulled my scholarship," Batiste said. "I'm still completely stunned, I never saw this coming. They said it was because I didn't play any corner this year, I was moved to linebacker but I did it because that's where they needed me.
"I have no idea what I'm going to do right now. Obviously no one else has been talking to me since I've been committed for so long. I hope my coaches can reach out for me but since I don't have any film of me playing corner, I'm worried that schools wont come after me. It's definitely not a good position to be in."
The Aztecs were the only school that offered Batiste but he was also hearing from Colorado, New Mexico State and San Jose State. The athlete has a couple of months before Signing Day in hopes of landing another FBS offer.
