After announcing he was transferring to Stephen F. Austin just four days ago, Devonte Fields has changed his mind.
Stephen F. Austin released a statement regarding the matter.
“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.”
Fields has been separated from TCU after he was arrested for a misdemeanor battery charge that involved his ex-girlfriend on July 20.
“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.”
Fields compiled 57 tackles (20.5 for loss) and 10 sacks in his two seasons at TCU.
