Nebraska’s interest in Eric Fields came about quickly, and so did his commitment.
A linebacker prospect from Ardmore, Oklahoma, Fields arrived in Nebraska for an official visit without a scholarship offer. Soon after, Fields announced his commitment to Nebraska on Wednesday, marking another key addition to Nebraska’s 2023 class.
At 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds, Fields is suited to a 3-3-5 defense as a quick outside defender. Similar to many of Rhule's recruiting targets, Fields has excellent marks as a sprinter. While he is unranked by most recruiting services, Fields' athleticism stands out on tape.
Recruiting staffer Omar Hales and defensive backs coach Evan Cooper led the way in getting Fields to Nebraska for an official visit. While in Lincoln, Fields officially received his scholarship offer and his decision came soon after. Fields is the 20th high school recruit to sign with Nebraska on Wednesday.
