"I'd still go to Boise State if the offer was there," said Payne.(Via Scout.com) Payne's response to this question: Would Boise State still be the favorite if that offer was still on the table? I know as Nuggie's we wanted Payne but Fields is as capable a back as Payne is and they are very similar in style. That's recruiting. Spots fill and people move on. However, if the Malcolm Johnson rumors are to be believed and he is indeed planning to walk back onto the team that might have had an affect on a roster spot. I wish Payne the best and hope he has a stellar career no matter where he may end up. You never know, he might still end up a Bronco.
