USC Football Recruiting: Shay Fields Officially De-Commits


St. John Bosco wide receiver Shay Fields officially decommited from USC on Twitter this morning after weeks of speculation that the Trojans had cooled their interest.

Fields, a former Boise State commit, was offered by Ed Orgeron’s staff back in October and immediately committed to join the Trojans. However, the hiring of Steve Sarkisian threw a wrench in his plans as the new staff seemed to favor other targets.

Undersized at 5-11, 160 pounds, Fields stands out with agility and shiftiness. Back in December, he told Bleacher Report that Sarkisian’s offense is his ideal situation. Instead, it looks like Fields will take his talents to Cal, Colorado or Boise State.

The four-star receiver is ranked 41st in the country by Rivals, 74th by Scout and 85th by 247 Sports.

USC’s limited scholarship numbers have resulted in a couple of decommits this week as the Trojans look to open up spots for more coveted recruits like Adoree Jackson, Juju Smith and Damien Mama. Last week, Corona Centennial defensive lineman Austin Maloata announced that he was looking elsewhere as well.

That leaves USC with four available scholarships out of the 19 they can fill this recruiting season.
