Mountaineers Add Randy Fields to WR Commitment List
Randy Fields, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound wide receiver and defensive back from Elkton, Md., has committed to West Virginia University. He is the 15th verbal commitment for the Mountaineer in the class of 2018.
Fields had scholarship offers from Pitt and Cincinnati, as well as interest from Maryland and Penn State, but a recent offer from WVU was quickly followed by a verbal commitment.
A wide receiver for St. Frances Academy, Fields was a Baltimore Sun first-team all-Metro performer as a junior last season. He caught 61 passes for 995 yards in 2016, including a 13-catch, 210-yard game of then-No. 1 McDonogh. The Panthers face not only most of the football powerhouses from the Baltimore and Washington, D.C., area, but they will also venture out to face some of the top national programs. This year that slate features Bishop Sullivan (Va.) Catholic, Don Bosco (N.J.) Prep, and IMG Academy from Bradenton, Fla.
Logan Holgorsen, the son of WVU head coach Dana Holgorsen, recently transferred from Morgantown High to St. Frances. A rising junior, Holgorsen is a quarterback who figures to be throwing passes this coming season to Fields.
A native of Elkton, Md., Fields transferred to St. Frances, which is about 60 miles away, prior to the start of the 2016 season.
