The defense for the Cards just got stronger. Former Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year Devonte Fields has been cleared by the UofL admissions department, according to ESPN’s Max Olson. Fields will arrive on campus on August 4. Practice begins on August 6.
Fields was ESPN’s No. 2 rated junior college recruit at Trinity Valley Community College last year, where he spent one season after being dismissed from TCU.
The misdemeanor assault charge he faced for allegedly hitting an ex-girlfriend last July was recently dropped after Fields completed an anger-management program.
James Allen and Chandler Jones are the last two members of the class that are still waiting to be cleared to play.
