How Good is the Newest Mountaineer Defender?

This week, former Arizona Wildcat linebacker Tony Fields II committed to play for Neal Brown and the Mountaineers.

Fields comes to WVU as a grad transfer and will be eligible immediately to play for West Virginia. However, while he may not be a household name that Mountaineers know, what Fields brings with him from Arizona is absolutely impressive.

After landing with the Wildcats, Fields took no time making a name for himself. After a solid 2017 season that saw him finish with 104 tackles, 5 sacks, and one interception, he was named a “Freshman All-American” by ESPN and 247Sports. Certainly not too shabby of a feat for any player in the nation.

He would follow that up with a solid sophomore and junior year that saw him finish with around 90 tackles in both seasons, while also adding 3.5 total sacks.

Fields comes to WVU with an already impressive statistical presence at a big-time College Football program, and should be able to step in for the Mountaineers right away.

So how good is he exactly? Well, take a look for yourself. Here is a highlight video of Fields put together by Traemaine Savea.
