"I committed to Syracuse two days ago," Houston Washington QB Joseph Fields said. "My recruiting process is over." The Orangeman, behind the recruitment of offensive coordinator/offensive line coach George DeLeone, simply outrecruited everybody else.
"They (Syracuse) showed me they wanted me more...and recruiting me as hard as they were, with the quarterback position wide-open, just made that a good place to be."
According to the 6-0.5, 213-pounder, with a 4.75 forty, Syracuse recruited and was interested in him as both an "athlete and student". That was a big deal to Fields and with former Orangeman QB Donovan McNabb being his idol, just didn't get much better for the three-star passer.
"I just felt like that was where my heart was at," said the Big 12 Hot 100 signal-caller. "And they recruited me hard from day one."
Fields' 2003 stats: 1800 yards passing, 22 TDs and 4 INTS, with 800 yards rushing and 12 TDs.
