Interviews with Fields, Chatham

I talked to Houston quarterback <B>Joseph Fields</B> and Spring-Westfield (Houston) offensive lineman <B>Jeray Chatham</B> Sunday at Tom Lemming's Houston photo shoot.

First I talked to QB Joseph Fields (TXAM Nike stats: 6-1, 215 lbs., 4.7 in the 40) from Houston Washington. I had previously watched and talked to Joseph at the Texas A&M Nike Camp.

Joseph, good to see you again. Did Michigan's Coach Jackson visit your school in May, and did he call you?

"Yes. He came to the school, and then he called me too. He wants me to come to the Michigan Summer Camp. I'd like to go -- I'm thinking about it, about how to get up there."

Who has offered you so far?

"I have offers from Syracuse, Wisconsin, Arkansas and Tulane."

Just then a big (looking 6-3, 260 lbs.), friendly-looking kid with a red Spring-Westfeld tee-shirt, overhearing us talk, walked over.

Are you Jeray Chatham?

"Yessir, I am."

Nice to meet you Jeray. Same questions -- did Coach Jackson visit, did he call you, and what did he say about camp, an offer, etc.?

"Coach Jackson was at the school this spring, and called me in May. As far as the Michigan Camp -- my dad and I are talking about it, trying to arrrange it. I want to go -- I'm planning to go. Coach Jackson said Michigan would offer me at camp."

Who has offered you a scholarship at this point?

"I have offers from LSU, Arizona, Colorado, Oklahoma State, Iowa State and Minnesota."

Note: as Joseph and Jeray walked off they were exchanging phone numbers.

As a junior, Joseph Fields passed for 1,492 yards and 15 touchdowns, and he rushed for 666 yards and 11 touchdowns.
