USC Offers Former Arizona Linebacker

Scott Wolf

Tony Fields II, a starting linebacker at Arizona for three seasons, has received a scholarship offer from USC.

Fields, who played weakside linebacker at Arizona, is a graduate transfer and would be immediately eligible. He announced Wednesday he would leave Arizona.

"Being a Wildcat has been an honor as well as one of the best experiences of my life," Fields tweeted Wednesday. "I have grown in so many facets due to my tenure here in Tucson."

Fields started every game the past three seasons and had 287 tackles in 37 games. He also intercepted two passes and recorded 8.5 sacks.

It makes sense for USC to offer Fields because although the Trojans return a lot of linebackers, there are questions at all three spots.

Palaie Gaoteote can play middle or strong side but he was inconsistent. Jordan Iosefa is an expected starter but was hurt last season. Other possible starters like Abdul-Malik McClain, Hunter Echols, Kana'i Mauga, Eli'jah Winston and Ralen Goforth have not been given extensive playing time.

Texas, UCLA, West Virginia and Minnesota have also offered Fields so far.

When the play is coming to him, his first step is hesitant. He is looking for the ball. he should know where the ball is and beat the olineman. Olinman makes intial contact thereore lber is being controlled by olinman and is being knocked down. Speed is average to good. He doesn't read the play fast enough and is slow because of that. More time in the film room and more time on the field might help.

Wow! Already deleting posts. Oh that’s right Wolf doesn’t read the blog. Not off to a good start here.

Trump unleashing his gestapo on Americans in the city of Portland, Oregon.

Donald Trump’s war on protesters is escalating, with reports emerging out of Portland, Ore., that federal law enforcement officers, wearing camouflage but without any other visible insignia, have been rounding up American citizens. On Thursday, Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB) reported that “federal law enforcement officers have been using unmarked vehicles to drive around downtown Portland and detain protesters since at least July 14. Personal accounts and multiple videos posted online show the officers driving up to people, detaining individuals with no explanation of why they are being arrested, and driving off.”

Maybe I missed something in the video, but I'd be hard-pressed to say these are highlights. I guess one could say that he is always around the ball?

Do you think "Owns" will show up on this site or has his breast augmentation surgery sidelined him for another week?

I wonder if Gomer is proud of him yet?

Well, I'm not sure I like what I saw when he blitzed ---but he's certainly got one thing going for him: He didn't get coached by Pendergast and company.
