Relationships With Iowa Coaches Are Key For QB Target Kamron Fields

Quarterback Kamron Fields has a positive first visit to Iowa.

Garland (Texas) Lakeview Centennial quarterback Kamron Fields has been target number one for the Iowa Hawkeyes the past few weeks. They offered him a few months ago but the heat has been turned up. They plan on visiting him at his school later this week, just days after he spent a weekend in Iowa City to check out the Hawkeye campus for the first time. 

Fields also plans to visit Iowa once again in June for one of the tailgater events, which is only more proof that the Hawkeyes are in great shape for the Lone Star State signal caller. 

His relationship with Iowa wide receivers coach Bobby Kennedy is a budding one. Kennedy is responsible for the Hawkeyes' recruiting efforts in Texas and deserves much of the credit for securing the verbal pledge of running back Eno Benjamin. Now he's moving on and attempting to lock up Fields.

"Coach Kennedy took us up to the offices after the game," Fields said. "He's great. He's very playful. He's a great guy that really takes pride in making relationships with his players. He's something else." 

"I'm also close with Coach (Greg) Davis," he added. "I'm not as close to him as I am Coach Kennedy but he's a great guy, too. He's real easy to talk to and he's very admirable."

Fields also had a conversation with head coach Kirk Ferentz but he and the Hawkeye boss focused their discussion on off-the-field topics.

"I enjoyed sitting down with Coach Ferentz and just talking about school," Fields explained. "We also talked about being a good person outside of the locker room. It was more than just football to him."

The visit was a positive one for Fields, and as previously mentioned, he will head to Iowa City once again over the summer.
