When Anthony Fields left his home in Detroit to attend prep school in North Carolina, he did so with the goal of earning himself a high major scholarship. Wednesday night, Fields goal was met when he verbally committed to Jeff Bzdelik and Wake Forest.
A six-foot tall senior point guard at Winston-Salem (N.C.) Quality Education Academy, Fields confirmed the news late Wednesday night.
"I verbally committed to Wake Forest tonight," Fields told Rivals.com. "(I'm) a Demon Deacon."
A speedy, pass-first point guard, Fields is in the mold of a traditional point guard. He runs his team, gets others involved and has developed into a steady jump shooter who picks his spots to provide a scoring boost.
"It was a big decision for me to leave home, but me and my dad thought it was best for me," said Fields of initially leaving Detroit for Quality Education Academy. "It's all worked out at Q.E.A."
A three-star prospect, Fields joins a recruiting class that already includes three-stars Daniel Green and Chase Fischer.
"I think I'm the kind of guy who does whatever his coach needs him to," said Fields. "I can run my team, I get others involved and I'm quick. You can't teach speed and you can't stop what you can't catch."
