The USC Trojans have offered a scholarship to former Arizona linebacker Tony Fields II, just days after he announced his decision to transfer from the Wildcats.

Fields also sports multiple other offers, including big-time Power-5 programs such as Texas and West Virginia, among others, according to social media reports.
He would be a great get for the Trojans on the defensive side of the ball as he represents the Wildcats’ second leading tackler from a season ago. He had 76 solo tackles as well as a slew of other assists and presented a challenge to opposing teams when he blitzed.
He’s a gifted coverage defender and a talented run defender who recorded 19 total QB pressures to boot.
Fields marks the second prominent player from the Arizona defense to transfer this offseason, joining Scottie Young Jr., who transferred to West Virginia earlier this summer.
Against USC last year, Fields racked up six solo tackles and four stops at the line of scrimmage as well as a forced fumble. He’s a multi-year starter with a year of eligibility left, and would be an instant contributor for USC.
We’ll monitor his decision and report back if he so chooses the Trojans.
