Duquesne, Pa., safety and wide receiver Elijah Fields is one of the top athletes in western Pennsylvania. Fields intercepted two passes from his cornerback position his sophomore year. He moved to safety his junior year and had a spectacular season intercepting 12 passes.
The 6-foot-1 and 200 pound Fields also caught 26 passes for 591 yards last season. He averaged 22.7 per reception and scored 14 times.
"I think I'll probably play safety in college," Fields said. "I have at least 10 or 11 offers. About eight of them are in writing."
Asked what schools he is interested in, Fields said, "Pitt, West Virginia, and Ohio State, that's all. It's down to those three.
"Pitt and West Virginia offered in writing. (Ohio State assistant) Coach Daniels offered verbally. I haven't talked to coach Tressel.
"I'll probably visit West Virginia this month or next month. I've been to Pitt a lot of times. I plan to go to a football game at Ohio State.
"All three schools are equal. I'll probably decide toward the middle of the season. I want to see if I get any other big offers."
Fields is the No. 34 prospect in the state of Pennsylvania in the Rivals.com player rankings.
