Once he started entertaining offers from Power 5 programs and racked up the stats, it seemed inevitable Derrion Grim would end his five-month long commitment to Boise State.
That's exactly what happened Monday as the receiver from McNair High in Stockton, Calif., decommitted from Boise State and flipped to Nebraska, where he visited over the weekend. Grim committed to the Broncos on April 6. In three games this season, he put up video game stats, with 33 catches for 706 yards and 13 touchdowns, plus a 90-yard kickoff return TD.
I would like to announce that I am decommitting from Boise State University. Thank you. pic.twitter.com/0wiYA8yrTi— Derriøn Grim™ (@DeexGrim17) September 14, 2015

With Grim out, here is how the Broncos' verbal commitments fared over the weekend:
– QB Micah Wilson, 6-3, 205, Lincoln Christian School (Tulsa, Okla.)
Wilson again didn't need to do much to get the job done, but was again efficient in doing so. He was 7-of-12 for 121 yards with three touchdowns, rushing for 53 yards in a 44-6 win over Holland Hall on Friday. This season, he is 16-of-23 passing for 393 yards with eight touchdowns and no interceptions. He's rushed eight times for 72 yards.
– DL Chase Hatada, 6-3, 260, Rocklin (Calif.) High
Hatada, who is dealing with a knee strain and may return at the end of the month, missed Friday's 28-20 loss against Whitney.
– CB Robert Lewis, 5-10, 170, Augustus Hawkins High (Los Angeles)
Lewis had four tackles on defense and a 40-yard reception on offense in a 53-0 win over St. Bernard on Friday.
– OL Kole Bailey, 6-5, 285, Twin Falls High
Bailey again led a dominant Bruin rushing attack in a 35-14 win at Wood River on Friday.
– RB Robert Mahone, 6-0, 200, Prosper (Texas) High
Mahone scored three touchdowns (two rushing and one receiving) in Prosper's 35-28 loss to Highland Park on Saturday. He rushed for 187 yards on 27 carries and had two receptions for 13 yards. This season in three games, he has 60 carries for 420 yards with five touchdowns, plus four catches for 28 yards and another touchdown.
– WR Julian Carter, 6-2, 175, Saguaro High (Scottsdale, Ariz.)
Carter had two catches for 18 yards in a 49-7 rout of Dobson on Friday in his second game of the season. On the year, he has eight catches for 90 yards.
– OL Ezra Cleveland, 6-6, 270, Bethel High (Spanaway, Wash.)
Cleveland and Bethel improved to 2-0 with a 42-7 win over Mt. Rainier on Friday. Cleveland helped the offense pick up 450 yards, and had five tackles for loss on defense.
– CB Reid Harrison-Ducros, 5-11, 175, Heritage High (Colleyville, Texas)
Heritage beat Lake Highlands 42-28, though Harrison-Ducros did not register any stats.

Centennial, ranked No. 1 in the state by the LA Times, topped Orange Lutheran 35-14 on Friday. Williams had 13 tackles in the win.
– LB Tyson Maeva, 6-0, 225, Cathedral Catholic High (San Diego)
Cathedral won its first game of the season, taking down Torrey Pines 28-14 on Friday, but stats weren't available for Maeva, who has been battling a shoulder injury.
– RB Damarea Crockett, 5-11, 212, Little Rock (Ark.) Christian High
– TE Nick Crabtree, 6-6, 250, Huntington Beach (Calif.) High
