Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast High receiver Tristan Payton has withdrawn his commitment to USC.

"I've decided to decommit from the university of Southern California thanks for all the support and love," Payton wrote in a tweet on Friday.

Payton committed to USC in August.

Two receivers remain in the Trojans' 2015 recruiting class.

Isaac Whitney transferred from Riverside City College and enrolled for the spring semester; Long Beach City College's De'Quan Hampton can sign a letter of intent Feb. 4.

USC has 15 verbal commitments and can sign 19 players.
