Draft Scout Devonte Fields News
01/29/14 - TCU DE Fields attacked, threatened...TCU defensive end Devonte Fields was robbed and threatened at gunpoint during an early Tuesday morning attack at his home in Fort Worth, Texas. Fields, voted the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year by the Associated Press in 2012, will not press charges in the incident. He initially agreed to allow Fort Worth police to search his home but later decided not to pursue the case. TCU 360 reported that the 6-foot-4, 240-pound Fields was confronted by three suspects while walking to his off-campus home from his car about 5:50 a.m. Tuesday. According to the police report, he was pushed inside the home, beaten and robbed. He then was taken back outside. At that point, he grabbed an arm of one of the assailants and shots were fired, but no one was struck.
A nearby homeowner reported to police that a bullet traveled through the front window of her home. Among the stolen items from Fields' home were a cellphone, game system and shoes, Fields told police. Horned Frogs coach Gary Patterson told TCU 360 that Fields was not hurt and he went to classes and workouts later that day. Fields saw limited action in 2013 as a sophomore because of a two-game suspension at the start of the season and then a foot injury. As a freshman, he finished the season with 43 tackles and 10 sacks. - The Sports Xchange
10/10/13 - TCU defensive end Devonte Fields will miss the rest of the season because of a foot injury that will require surgery. Coach Gary Patterson said Wednesday that Fields has been frustrated by the foot he hurt at Texas Tech on Sept. 12. Fields last season was the Big 12 defensive player of the year as a true freshman when he had 10 sacks. After an unspecified violation of university and team rules during the offseason, he missed the season opener and parts of two other games this summer as penalty. Because Fields played in only three games, he could get a medical redshirt and have three seasons of eligibility remaining after this season. He had four tackles without a sack. - AP Sports
10/10/13 - TCU DE Devonte Fields to have surgery, seek medical redshirt...It seems as if the nightmare 2013 season has come to an end for TCU defensive end Devonte Fields. According to Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram Fields will undergo surgery on his foot and seek a medical redshirt for the 2013 season. After being named the Big 12's Defensive Freshman of the Year and making the All-Big 12 First team last season, 2013 hasn't gone quite to plan for Fields.
He was suspended for the first two games of the season, and has been dealing with a foot injury throughout the season. Because of the injury and suspension he's only played in two games, making four tackles. Last season Fields finished with 53 tackles, 18.5 tackles for loss, 10 sacks and an interception. By having the surgery on his foot now and seeking the medical redshirt both Fields and the Horned Frogs can at least salvage a year of eligibility for what has become a lost season. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com
09/27/13 - TCU defensive end Devonte Fields (foot) out for SMU game...TCU defensive end Devonte Fields has been ruled out for Saturday's game against SMU , coach Gary Patterson told the Fort-Worth Star-Telegram. Fields injured his foot during TCU's 20-10 loss at Texas Tech on Sept. 12. The Horned Frogs were off last week, and hope to bounce back with a victory against their former Southwest Conference rivals.
The 2012 Big 12 Defensive Freshman of the Year received a two-game suspension in May for breaking unspecified team rules. Fields missed all of the opener against LSU, but played sparingly against Southeast Louisiana and Texas Tech. According to Gary Patterson, Fields must sit one more quarter to complete his punishment. Fields recorded 18.5 tackles for a loss and 10 sacks in 2012, but the suspension and injuries have hampered his sophomore campaign. TCU's defense has been solid in his absence, and there is no reason to risk further injury in a game where the Horned Frogs enter as double-digit favorites. - Chip Patterson, CBSSports.com
09/12/13 - Scouting the TCU pass defense: A good pass rush is the key to good pass defense, at least according to Patterson, whose expertise is on the defensive side of the ball. Although he played just one quarter against Southeastern Louisiana, the presence provided by DE Devonte Fields made the Horned Frogs better at defending the pass. Fields is a sack specialist who often disrupts opposing throwers. - The Sports Xchange
