Running back Squally Canada of Milpitas, Calif., has decommitted from the Boise State football team’s class of 2014, he confirmed via text message Friday night.
Canada plans to visit Oregon State this weekend.
Earlier this week, Canada told me he remained committed to Boise State but would visit Oregon State. But when he committed to the Broncos, he agreed to shut down his recruitment and Boise State agreed not to recruit other running backs.
“Things didn’t work out,” Canada said by text. “I was going to be in violation of my commitment and it was either have (the scholarship offer) pulled or decommit.”
Here is the original story I wrote about Canada.
