ASU signee Evan Fields highlights

Four-star safety Evan Fields cited his relationships with Arizona State assistants Keith Patterson and T.J. Rushing as primary factors in his decision to commit to the Sun Devils.

Arizona State defensive backs coach T.J. Rushing scoured the country for high-profile recruits during his first year with the Sun Devils, and his persistence struck a chord with four-star safety Evan Fields.

Fellow Oklahoma natives, Fields and Rushing developed a bond during the recruiting process that Fields said played a major role in his decision to commit to the Sun Devils on Monday. Fields chose ASU over several high-profile offers including Baylor, Kansas State, Notre Dame, Oregon and UCLA among others. 

Within the last 10 days, Scout awarded Fields, the No. 27 safety nationally, a fourth-star, which helped boost the Sun Devils' overall average star rating in this year's class.
