Last November, 6-foot-6, 180-pound North Hollywood (Calif.) Campbell Hall 2012 small forward Cole Huff made an early commitment to San Diego State.
Huff has now decided to open things up.
"I decommitted," Huff said. "I got injured, they got a couple transfers and a commitment from Matt Shrigley, and I haven't been myself.
"I've been trying to play through it in July and I'm working my way back. My dad talked to them and said the offer is still on the table but it would be hard for me to get playing time with the commitment and transfers."
Now completely open in his recruitment, Huff is hoping to hear from some of the schools who were interested in him before his commitment to the Aztecs.
"Fresno State, Nevada, Long Beach State, New Mexico and UCSB were the schools that stood out before I chose San Diego State," he said.
Since the decommitment, schools have shown interest and he's already picked up one offer.
"There are schools calling but they talk to my coach and dad," Huff said. "I talked to U.C. Irvine (Wednesday) and they offered me a scholarship. I'm going to take my time no matter who the schools are, no matter who offers me."
There's no rush for Huff to rush back into a commitment somewhere, as he's going to be cautious in selecting a school.
"I just want to take my time," Huff said. "If I'm really for sure and my parents are comfortable I'll make a commitment in the fall, but if not I'll make a decision in the spring."
Huff will be looking at several factors in a program, including location.
"Somewhere that isn't far away; I kind of want to be a West Coast guy," he said. "I want to run up-tempo. I've always been told to go where I'm really wanted and if someone really wants me and I can help them out, that's what I want."
