    Nothing new here as Elijah says he is down to four schools: Pitt, Ohio State, Penn State and West Virginia. Still no mention of a visit to tOSU.

    Take it for what it is worth but Elijah will need a miracle to qualify into these schools that he wants to go to. Most likley a JUCO or a Prep school for him.

    I hope for miracles too but the person who told me this is absolute money on Western PA recruits.

    Fields says tOSU is recruiting him as a receiver. He will visit tOSU on 25 Jan. Claims no favorite and will announce on signing day.

    If he is visiting, I would think his acedemic standing may not be as much of a longshot as originally thought. Anyone know if the acedemic hangup is only test scores, or grades also. It seems like (at least this year), the staff has been more willing to allow guys with decent grades to visit without the proper test scores, maybe because those are much easier to raise than it is to undo 4 years of poor grades. Hope things work out for Fields & the Bucks.
  6. Another one of them recruits that I feel if they get thier grades in order we stand a good chance.

    I also think that we are only going to take one more reciever besides Small and we have Fields/Johnson/Lyons/Matthews fighting for that one spot so it should be fun to watch down the stretch.

    Is fields being recruited as WR or a DB? Maybe it doesn't matter, as he would get looks at both, but I think the more immediate need is at DB - particularly CB.

    Fields has continued to say that tOSU is recruiting him as a WR.

    The player host for Duquesne's Elijah Fields, the 2005 Pittsburgh Trib Football Player of the Year, during his visit to Penn State this weekend was 2004 Trib co-Player of the Year Justin King of Gateway. Don't be surprised if King, expected to start at cornerback, tried to sell Fields -- who wants to play receiver in college -- on the idea of teaming up together in the Lions' defensive secondary.

    Fields is scheduled to retake the ACT on Jan 28, he may reschedule his visit to tOSU after the retake. Fields is scheduled to visit Wva this weekend and Pitt is coming in for a visit today.

    both Rivals and Scout are listing Fields with an offer now...changing the thread title to reflect this.

    49 yards a catch!:yow1: :yow1: I don't think I've ever heard of a bigger number.
    Admittedly, I don't know how good the competition was, but jeez!

    He plays in the smaller school division in Pittsburgh, but the competition there is nothing to laugh about at all. The regular season was not that impressive but the competition in the playoffs was really good.

    Rochester is a Power
    Southern Columbia can play with just about anyone in the State

    I would have liked to see the Greensburg Central Catholic game. I think OSU is recruiting a WR from there as well.
