Is it possible that Fields is waiting on confirmation that the B1G has a football season this year?

Plus he hasn’t graduated yet.
He hasn't graduated Arizona by Aug 2, and yet he's planning to enroll at another school and participate in fall camp ... this month ... as a grad transfer? That doesn't seem right.

Are you certain about that? Source?

If the Big Ten cancels its season, it will mean there is no college football this fall. If other P5 are going to give it a try, so will they.

That is the simple truth, and hopefully he understands that.

If you won't even elaborate on what the source is in generality, then people should assume you're not correct.
You’re free to make that assumption, but it’s wrong. He has a couple weeks to go before he graduates.

You're just making a wild guess.

If you won't even elaborate on a source ("guy I know close to the family" "someone made a claim on a pay site, can't share the link" etc.), then you shouldn't even post at all.

Nope.

Let the record show, PitinoFan is batting 0 for 0.

You pulled a similar-ish stunt with whatshisname not coming here. And you were right. So we’ll see.

I checked the academic calendar for the Univ of Arizona. The last summer term ends Aug 11 with degrees awarded on Aug 21.

Well it’s not like PitinoFan is plugged into anything. Lol no.

At most, he pays for G.I.and is just being a weird-o about not naming them as the source.

Also, high school players make commitments and sign NLI’s before they graduate.

If there was a chance Fields wouldn’t graduate, then he would never go through the process of having a top 3 etc. So he’s obviously going to graduate, if he hasn’t already.

I don’t see why that would prevent him from making a decision.

Well, for starters, there’s a Tony Lyndon Fields listed in the Arizona student directory, which is accessible online to everyone. On Instagram, he is Tony L Fields.

But you’re right, it shouldn’t stop him from making a decision.

This is huge. Such a need at LB and to bring in a guy like Fields appears like a massive upgrade from potential RS FR or others that may be playing with Oliver out.

I'm ready for another big-time recruiting W!

Just talking pure skill I don’t think he’s a massive upgrade, but I think bringing in someone with that much experience is huge. Hopefully he has strong leadership skills, don’t know enough about him to comment on that. I do know Arizona had a pretty bad defense last year.

Any new news on this? When does he decide??
Probably after all his academic work has been submitted and exams taken. My daughter graduated early taking 23 credits in her final term. Her last week of exams and papers cut things a little close
