Highly ranked recruit Justin Fields decommits from Penn State

Penn State football took a hit Tuesday night.

Justin Fields, a dual-threat QB and heralded 2018 college football prospect, revoked his commitment to the Nittany Lions, via ESPN.

Fields made the announcement on Twitter and said Penn State will remain one of his top options.

The Kennesaw, Georgia native is the fourth-ranked 2018 prospect by ESPN and the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback. According to Rivals.com, the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Fields has received 38 scholarships offers.

The Harrison High School product originally committed to Penn State in December.

Two hours after Fields' announcement, Penn State head coach James Franklin tweeted:

Penn State went 11-3 last season, won the Big Ten championship and lost the Rose Bowl in a 52-49 thriller to USC.
