Tennessee’s 2019 class now has seven players of four stars or higher with Fields in tow. Fields is the sixth player with four stars, with offensive tackle Wanya Morris being the only five-star of the class so far. Fields is also the second player from the state of North Carolina to elect to commit to the Volunteers. He joins Havelock’s Anthony Harris, who like Fields will play in the secondary, as Harris is a four-star safety. Fields, meanwhile, attends William Amos Hough HS in Cornelius, located right beside Lake Norman.
Tyus Fields is currently listed at 5-foot-10, 182 lbs. as he enters his senior season. He currently ranks 217th in the nation and is also ranked 23rd among all cornerbacks in the 2019 cycle. In the state of North Carolina, he currently checks in at 6th overall, behind the likes of Harris, Quavaris Crouch, N.C. State commit Savion Jackson, FSU commit Sam Howell and Notre Dame commit Osita Ekwonu.
Before committing to the Vols, Fields held offers from the Clemson Tigers, FSU, N.C. State, the Ohio State Buckeyes, Penn State Nittany Lions and Wisconsin Badgers.
Tennessee’s class now ranks 12th in the nation and 5th in the SEC with Fields’ commitment.
