As a junior in 2010, Jack Fields rushed for over 1,700 yards and 18 touchdowns on his way to first-team all-city, first-team all-district and honorable mention all-state honors. He's received interest from a number of schools in several different areas. Pittsburgh was one of them.
"I was receiving some letters from Pittsburgh, they had been in contact, but it slowed down when they had the coaching staff change," Fields said. "I don't know what the latest is with them, but I haven't really heard anything since the coaching change."
Fields recently got himself set up for the Nike Training Camp at TCU later in the spring, and will head to the Texas state 7-on-7s held annually at Texas A&M in July. He's also heard from a few other schools out west.
"I started receiving interest from Oregon," Fields said. "I'm really excited about that. Hopefully that picks up. Arizona, that's a great school. They run the pro-style offense, which fits my running. I feel like I can play anywhere, but I like the pro-style (offense).
"Another one of the schools I'm interested in is Nevada. You're going to get a lot of carries if you go to Nevada. One season, they had three guys with 1,000-yard seasons."
Fields will also participate in one of the upcoming FBU camps, and was most recently at a junior day at UTEP, in his home town of El Paso. Overall, Fields is pleased with how his recruitment has started off.
"It's going pretty well," Fields said. "I'm really excited about it."
