Arizona Grad Transfer LB Tony Fields Picks WVU over Texas, Minnesota
Arizona linebacker Tony Fields made it known last month he was intent on leaving the Wildcats for another program, and on Monday the linebacker picked West Virginia.
Fields, a three-year starter for Arizona, announced Monday evening on Twitter that he has committed to WVU.

Fields will arrive in Morgantown as a graduate transfer and should be immediately eligible for the Mountaineers after choosing WVU over Minnesota and Texas. Listed at 6-foot-1 and 220 pounds, Fields started 37 games over three seasons at Arizona. Last season he accounted for 94 tackles, five tackles for a loss and one interception.
The former Wildcat won’t have search long for familiar faces in Morgantown. Fields will be reunited with fellow UA transfer Scottie Young, a safety, as well as former Arizona assistants Jahmile Addae and Jeff Casteel — both now members of Neal Brown’s coaching staff at WVU.
