Report: Devonte Fields to meet with TCU officials

Devonte Fields, Wes Lunt

The fate of TCU’s talented but troubled defensive end, Devonte Fields, could be decided Tuesday. According to FOX Sports Southwest’s David Ubben, Fields will meet with school officials to determine his status as a student at the university.

Fields was dismissed from the football team while the Fort Worth Police Department continues its investigation into a domestic incident between Fields and his ex-girlfriend. During the incident, Fields allegedly threatened his ex-girlfriend with a gun and punched her in the head.

Last week, Fields surrendered to a misdemeanor warrant. He was released after posting a $3,500 bond.

Tuesday will be the first step for Fields to mend fences between himself, the school and the football program. If the school allows Fields to attend classes, he will remain eligible to play for the Horned Frogs in the fall, depending on the outcome of the investigation.

Fields, who was named the Big 12’s preseason Defensive Player of the Year, would be a valuable addition to TCU’s lineup. But the team dealt with him being out of the lineup last year due to a different suspension and a broken foot. TCU head coach Gary Patterson has been swift and stern in punishing players the last few years, and the coach will move forward without Fields if the situation dictates it.

    Please don’t take him back. Normally I would say give him the benefit of the doubt until this plays out and just suspend him, but with what he is charged with along with his past issues he’s just not a kid deserving of a free ride. Too bad because he’s got the skills to be great

    Taking lessons from Charlie Strong.

    Dismiss him from the team, let him come back.

    Because he’s a starter.

    Goodfield,

    You are the most pathetic poster on this website…seriously, get some help Ag. I mean, it’s actually kind of amusing…your love affair with the Longhorns is becoming legendary. Funny considering how the off season has gone for the Ag’s and their record setting list of arrests…you act like Kev is full of morals and ethics. Hell, he would take Devonte back before his handcuffs came off if he could play a lick of defense for your Ag’s. Keep on tooling you tool…good luck in trolling high school twitter accounts.
