Mark Fields commits to South Carolina

Student Sports

4-star CB is the 5th verbal commit for 2015 cycle.

U.S. Army All-American cornerback Mark Fields has verbally committed to the University of South Carolina. Fields committed on Saturday while unofficially visiting Columbia.

This is a big get. Fields boasts an impressive offer list comprised of top-flight SEC programs like Alabama, LSU, Georgia, and Tennessee, as well as Florida State, Clemson, Ohio State and Notre Dame, among a host of others. Fields, out of Cornelius, NC, was recruited by Grady Brown and Shawn Elliott.

The 247 Composite lists fields as a 4-star prospect, the 115th overall player in the 2015 class, as well as the 11th-best cornerback and the 4th-best prospect out of North Carolina. While cornerback was certainly a priority in the 2014 cycle—Carolina brought in four quality recruits, all of whom could see time as true freshmen—establishing depth behind the 2014 class is still an uphill battle. Fields will go a long way in that regard.

Fields becomes the second-highest rated player among South Carolina's 2015 verbals behind 5-star defensive end Shameik Blackshear. Fields told 247Sports.com that "Alabama finished second and Georgia finished third." Good thing those programs don't bother pursuing guys who have already committed to other schools, right?

Right?

Also worth noting that "mark fields" is the job description for the guy who paints the hashmarks.
