Hazelton's current list of schools includes Pittsburgh and several Football Championship Subdivision schools (Western Michigan, Florida International, Georgia Southern).
If he transfers to a lower-division school, Hazelton will be granted instant eligibility.
"The option is whether he wants to play immediately or sit out for one year," said Hazelton's father, Dexter Hazelton. "I'd like him to stay closer to home."
Two weeks ago, Hazelton narrowed his choices to Missouri and Rutgers but his father said they decided to reconsider their options. "I think (Missouri and Rutgers) are out," Dexter Hazelton said.
Two other possibilities are Syracuse and Delaware. Hazelton is friends with former Penn State quarterback Pat Devlin, who recently transferred to Delaware.
"He's contemplating hard about going I-AA," Dexter Hazelton said. "He probably make a decision by end of the this week."
