Shay Fields, a three-star wide receiver prospect at St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, Calif., has decommitted from the Boise State football team.

Fields told the Press-Tribune via text message that, "I just wanted to see what other schools will offer me and see what options I would get from this."

The high school senior, who took a visit to Boise State for the Nevada game, originally committed to the Broncos in late June. But he's had an impressive senior year and interest has continued to grow.

Fields was recently offered a scholarship by USC but said at the time he was still solidly committed to Boise State. He told the Press-Tribune that he's now considering USC, Colorado and Utah.

Asked if Boise State remained in the mix, Fields responded via text, "Yes a little bit but not as much as when I was committed."

Fields is the third recruit to decommit from Boise State in the past few months. Running back Squally Canada and defensive end Hawkins Mann, a former Borah High star, have both also decommitted from Boise State.
