One of the top safeties in the Class of 2016 has placed himself back on the open recruiting market, as Chacho Ulloa of Centennial (Corona) decided to withdraw from his commitment to Stanford and re-open his recruiting process on Jan. 12.

Ulloa originally made a verbal pledge to the Cardinal in Oct. 2015, but took to social media to make his latest decision.

“Through a lot of prayer and talking with my family, I have decided to de-commit from Stanford University and open up my recruitment,” Ulloa said via Twitter. “I want to thank all of the coaches at Stanford for the amazing opportunity they have given me. Also would like to thank everyone who has helped me to this point. I just feel this is my best decision for my future.”

The move is a significant loss for the 2016 Rose Bowl champions, as Ulloa is not only listed as a 4-star prospect by scout.com, but is considered one of the more instinctive safeties in California.

According to Max Preps, Ulloa intercepted six passes, forced one fumble and recovered a fumble during his senior year for the 14-1 Huskies, who lost 28-21 to De La Salle (Concord) for the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) State Open Division championship in Dec. 2015. For his three-year varsity career, the 6-foot, 185-pound Ulloa has 16 pass deflections, 10 interceptions and eight forced fumbles.

Ulloa held other scholarship offers from Arizona State, Norte Dame, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Cal, Utah and Nebraska. Scout.com reported on Jan. 12 that Ulloa is wide open to anyone and everyone right now and is basically starting from scratch.
