Clemson Verbal Looking

Eric Fields, four-star linebacker at Northside High School in Warner Robins, Ga., committed to Clemson back in early April. He remains committed, but he's cracking the door open for an SEC school.

"Abry (Jones) has been talking to me about Georgia," Eric Fields stated. "He said that when he went up there that they were asking about me. They wanted to know how I was doing. They wanted me to call them."

"I got a little book from them (Georgia). It's a book that tells all about the Georgia program. They can win a national championship. I wouldn't mind being apart of that."

Fields reports that Clemson lost touch with him for a short while. During that time and up until now, Georgia has been in contact with him.

"I had stopped talking to Clemson for a while," he said. "We weren't really in contact much. They've been back in touch with me, and they're giving me more attention than anyone now."

"I've been talking to Coach (John) Jancek (Georgia) some. He talked to me about what I could do up there. We talked about the linebacker position. He said that I'd fit in on defense there."

What are the percentages that Fields will stay committed to Clemson?

"There's an 85-percent chance that I'll stay with Clemson," he commented. "I like their coaches. When I watched their game the other day I felt like I could make an impact on the team. It's a little bit in-between (Georgia and Clemson), but I'd say that Clemson is still ahead."

"If I do change my mind it won't be for a while. I probably won't make any decisions until the end of the season."

Fields hasn't planned any officials, but is certain of two.

"I'll go to the Clemson game when they play Maryland," he said. "I'm gonna go to Georgia for a game. The others I don't know about yet."
