Los Osos RB Arby Fields, a three-star recruit according to Rivals.com, committed to Northwestern over the weekend, becoming the second Baseline League player to verbally commit to the Big 10 school during the past month, as Upland RB Davion Fleming pledged with the Wildcats last week.
Fields’ commitment came after officially visiting the Northwestern campus this week for the Wildcats’ 45-10 loss to Ohio State. While the Wildcats got drubbed, Fields liked what he saw according to the Rivals.com article about his commitment.
“They run the same offense as my high school – I mean exactly the same,” explained Fields. “They do a lot of the same stuff we do, so I’m going into an offense I’m very familiar with.”
Fields has rushed for 614 yards and 14 touchdowns on 123 carries while catching 31 passes for 508 yards and another three touchdowns for the 7-2 Grizzlies.
