is he shy? Was he a quiet kid or is this new behaviour? I have social anxiety it's like a crippling shyness. You want to go do this stuff but you have such a fear of social interactions it out weighs the want you have to do it. If I am having a panic attack while talking to someone I will look everywhere but at the person. It's not meant to be rude/ disrespectful but more like a cornered animal looking for an escape route. Does he have any friends or do other kids bully him? If it's a small town/close community then he could be too scared to be out incase he runs into these kids.
Maybe talk to him if you're worried. He might also just be an introvert, they can be hermits very easily I know a few, hell I'm married to one and I have to drag him out with me.
