Posted 2 days ago and still open. Able to play immediately.

Hope ODU gets him. If they do then I hope he doesn't just come in to keep the bench warm his first year like (6'-9" with 2 years to play) Kah did last season.

Agreed, we need some good news.

I think this would be a major get for the team and is a piece we need filled. Had 23 offers coming out of HS. Was a solid list.

I would love this to happen but the fact that SMU is his last visit, hurts a lot.

He went to high school in Nebraska... if he's trying to get closer to home that would hurt us too.

There would have to be a significant player to crack playing time this year (outside of 5 mins a game at PG).

To suggest we have enough big men on this team is quite possibly one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read.

We lost Talley and have Kah and Carver as backups to Porter and Stith.

To act as though we couldn't use this guy is quite frankly, delusional. Not sure why I'd expect anything else at this point though.

These are some strange comments since you mentioned Fields within them. To say that he "didn't work out" is simply not accurate. He was the back-up point guard as a true freshman ahead of the other guys that had college playing time at other schools. Had he not transferred to Radford he may have ended up as the starter depending on what is going on with Caver.

To say that this year you have "seen them shoot for the stars" (as opposed to last year) ... I think any player that wins Tidewater Player Of The Year, or any player that wins Virginia Player Of The Year, is considered a star player. Fields won both awards as well as 3 state championships. How many of these "stars" that they have recruited this season had a better resume than that?

Im sorry but Fields is not a great player and wasnt even on scholarship. High school awards really dont mean much, i have 2 buddies; one was Southeast District player od the year over BJ Upton and the other won over David Wright. Neither played one inning in college.

Giles, you are moving the goal post on this one. The topic is related to recruiting from the high school level, not what did you do afterwards. According to you coach Jones has just now gone off in pursuit of 'stars'. I take it now that you must mean recruiting services 'stars' since you are attempting to down play any awards that high school players obtain. Guess what, those recruiting services often don't hit the mark either (Kent Bazemore for example).

"Fields is not a great player and wasn't even on scholarship." --- He was a great player in High School. Three state championship trophies with him running the point, Tidewater POY award, and State POY Award attest to that. In case you forgot, he was told that he would be getting a scholarship after his freshman year by coach Jones according to the VA Pilot. Peyton Pervier was on scholarship. Was he therefore a great player?

"High School awards really don't mean much." --- Unless and until you want them to. I could name you a lot of former Virginia High School player of the year winners, or other types of Virginia player of the year winners from high school that went on to have very substantial college careers. A few of them even ended up at ODU and at least one of them went on to the NBA (hint, Atlanta).

I'm pretty sure that a lot of people got votes for Southeastern District Player Of The Year ahead of BJ Upton. He graduated in 2002 from Greenbrier Christian Academy, a private school that has never been a member of the Southeastern District. Congrats to your buddy for winning the award in the Southeastern District though.

By the way, David Wright (Hickory High School) earned All-State honors in 1999, 2000 and 2001 and was named Virginia Player of the Year in 2001. He also won the Gatorade Virginia Player Of The Year in 2001. If your 'buddy' actually did win a district award over him then it is pretty obvious that the fix was in.

Hilariously misinformed but par for the course really.
