After three games and an eye-popping 685 yards receiving and 13 total touchdowns, Derrion Grim was separating himself as one of the premier recruits in the Mountain West Conference. But after Monday morning, Grim, a three-star wide receiver from McNair (Stockton, Caif.), isn't a part of that group, anymore.

While on an official visit to Nebraska, Grim announced on Twitter that he's decommiting from Boise State.

Grim told Mountain West Connection that he's "done with the recruiting process" after taking the visit to Lincoln, Nebraska. Now, he's going to "take a little more time," to think about where he'll be playing college football.

"Little" is an apt word choice. An hour and four minutes after announcing his decommitment from Boise State, Grim announced that he's verbally committing to Nebraska.

Grim received a scholarship offer from Nebraska after catching 10 passes for 238 receiving yards and six touchdowns – he also had a kickoff return for a touchdown – in his first game of the season for McNair. Grim also has offers from FCS schools Eastern Washington and Sacramento State.

The loss of Grim is huge for the Broncos 2016 recruiting class, but it's not lethal.

Boise State, which has the No. 1 ranked recruiting class in the Mountain West Conference and the 64th ranked class in the country, according to 247Sports, still has plenty of offensive weapons coming in. That group includes three-star wide receiver Julian Carter, three-star tight end Nick Crabtree and three star running backs Robert Mahone and Damarea Crockett.
