Devonte Fields cleared to play at Louisville
Former TCU defensive lineman Devonte Fields has been cleared to play at Louisville this fall.
The Louisville defense will have a former Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year at its disposal this fall.
Former TCU defensive end Devonte Fields told ESPN.com on Wednesday that he's been cleared to play at Louisville this fall. He'll enroll at the school on Aug. 4, just two days before fall practice is scheduled to begin.
Fields spent the 2014 season at Trinity Valley Community College after being dismissed from TCU. As a freshman in 2012, Fields played 13 games for the Horned Frogs, finishing the season with 10 sacks and 18.5 tackles for loss. The performance was good enough to take home Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year honors.
Fields would only play three games in 2013 due to injuries, and missed the entirety of the 2014 season after he was "separated" from TCU following allegations he punched and threatened an ex-girlfriend.
The misdemeanor charge against Fields was recently dropped after he had completed an anger-management program.
