After decommitting from the Boise State Broncos earlier this week, 2014 wide receiver Shay Fields decided that he would rather stay home and play football for the USC Trojans. Fields becomes the third commitment for the Trojans since the team fired head coach Lane Kiffin following their loss to Arizona State.
Although he committed to Boise State in late June, many of the recruiting expert started to predict that the Bellflower, California native would leave them for USC.
According to Scott Schrader of FightOn247, Fields had this to say about his commitment to USC:
“Yes sir, I committed to USC. I still plan on taking my visits but it feels great to be a Trojan. I’m excited to have this opportunity and play my college ball at USC.”
Shay Fields is a huge commitment for a football team that has described themselves as “Wide Receiver U.”
The St. John Bosco WR contains a number of skills on the football field. His best skills are his hands, ball skills, route running, change of direction, and his ability to rack up yards after the catch.
He is a quick wide receiver who uses his agility in combination with his ability to change directions.
Fields’ commitment is No. 8 overall for the Trojans and moves their class to 67th overall in the 247Sports class rankings.
The three-star recruit is currently ranked 86th in the state of California and 128th among wide receivers by 247Sports.
