Former TCU defensive end Devonte Fields is transferring to Stephen F. Austin. He made the announcement via his Twitter account. In two years at TCU, Fields accumulated 57 tackles, 20 1/2 tackles for loss, and 10 sacks.
Fields was the preseason Big 12 preseason Player of the Year but won’t have the opportunity to live up to that billing.
In late July, his ex-girlfriend accused Fields of assaulting her which resulted in TCU suspending him from the university. Fields did have the opportunity to appeal the suspension but decided to go in a different direction.
Fields will be eligible to play this season for his new FCS home.
Stephen F. Austin opens up its season at Kansas State on August 30.
TCU will face off against Samford in their season opener on August 30 as well.
