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.
