Ranked by as the No. 18 cornerback in the class of 2015, it was his first visit to Clemson since the Florida State game.

"It was pretty cool," Fields told CUTigers, during a recent interview. "I just got a chance to get down there and talk to coach [Dabo] Swinney, coach [Mike] Reed and coach [Tony] Elliott.

"I got to go down there with a guy they're recruiting as well, Van Smith, he's a safety and he's committed there. So I went down there with him and it was a good time."

Fields shared a few details from those conversations with the Clemson coaches.

"Coach Reed, we always talk about football stuff, how they're going to use me and things like that. With coach Elliott, it's just about the life at Clemson and things like that," Fields said. "Coach Swinney, that was really my first time getting to sit down and talking a good bit with him…they were just telling me how they wanted me really bad and things like that."

Recently, Fields announced a top 10 that included: Clemson, LSU, South Carolina, N.C. State, Tennessee, Florida State, Florida, Georgia, Ole Miss and UCLA.

"There's no order, it's just I narrowed them down, but it's no specific order," he said.

Clemson, Georgia, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Tennessee have offered. Fields will consider several factors as he thinks about narrowing down the list of 10.

"Just somewhere that I can come in and contribute early, just help the team win, because I know that I can do that right now, but that's about it," he said.

As a junior, Fields had 34 tackles, three interceptions, one sack and a three punt returns for touchdown. Top Stories
