Field Day: Fields commits to Syracuse

Joseph Fields, a quarterback with the ability to run and throw, committed to Syracuse, Fields said Thursday.

"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.
