Former Defensive end TCU Devonte Fields will not be transferring to Stephen F. Austin after all. Wednesday, Devonte Fields tweeted that he was transferring from TCU to Stephen F. Austin, but there’s been a change in those plans. Stephen F. Austin released a statement Friday saying that Fields will not be attending the school this fall.
Stephen F. Austin released a statement concerning Devonte Fields:
“After originally agreeing to grant a release to Devonte Fields, which would allow him to enroll and play football at Stephen F. Austin, Texas Christian University has since convened a committee and declared that Fields’ violations of the student honor code has warranted his suspension from the school.
“The decision by TCU renders Fields ineligible, prohibiting him from participating in football related activities at SFA for at least one year. In light of these developments, Fields has decided not to enroll at SFA and will not be a member of the Lumberjack football team.
“SFA head football coach Clint Conque will have no comment, stating this a decision of Texas Christian University and is a matter involving Fields and TCU.”
Fields is currently under investigation for an alleged domestic incident involving his ex-girlfriend. He had since been “separated” from the TCU Horned Frogs program “pending results of the investigation.”
Stay tuned to see what happens to this talented but troubled defensive player.
