Last May, North Hollywood (Calif.) Harvard-Westlake quarterback Chad Kanoff, a three-star in the 2013 class, committed to Vanderbilt.

In February, Kanoff signed with the Commodores, one of two quarterbacks from his league to sign with an SEC school.

But Kanoff decided this week to pass on playing in the SEC to go to the Ivy League instead.

In a statement released by Harvard-Westlake, Kanoff announced that he would be heading to Princeton instead of to Vanderbilt.

"Vanderbilt is a great school, with a strong football program, and a terrific coaching staff, and I’m grateful for the opportunity that was offered to me. However, after thoroughly thinking it through, I believe that Princeton is the best fit for me as a student-athlete. I wish Coach Franklin and the team nothing but the best," Kanoff said in the statement.

New Harvard-Westlake Head Coach Scot Ruggles also commented in the statement.

"It has been a pleasure to coach Chad Kanoff the past two seasons. Chad has left his mark on the Harvard-Westlake football program. I cannot speculate on his decision to attend Princeton. We wish Chad Kanoff all the best in his future as a student-athlete," said Ruggles.

Originally, Kanoff was joined by Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral quarterback Hayden Rettig, who signed with LSU, as Mission League quarterbacks headed to the SEC.

Instead, he'll join fellow Los Angeles three-star passer Kelly Hilinski out of Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame in the Ivy League. Hilinski is going to Columbia.

Brandon is in his ninth year with and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
