Fields will be reunited with WVU cornerbacks coach and co-defensive coordinator Jahmile Addae. Addae recruited the Las Vegas native to Arizona in 2017. Fields is the second Arizona defensive player to transfer to WVU this offseason. Safety Scottie Young has arrived in Morgantown and is practicing with the Mountaineers.
Fields has been an every-game starter for three seasons with the Wildcats. He earned Freshman All-America honors in 2017 from ESPN.com and 247 Sports. He has racked up 287 tackles, 8.5 sacks and a pair of interceptions in 37 career games at Arizona.
