Fields is receiving the attention from schools based on his talent as a signal caller.
"They all are talking quarterback right now," he said. "I think I showed them during the last year that I could both throw and run. And do both well. I'm excited about the upcoming season and the chance to show I can do it again."
Fields didn't hesitate long when asked who the best opponent he had faced was.
"Westbury's George Walker without a doubt. He is the best one from last year. And I'm pretty sure he'll be this year too. He's the type of receiver that you would love to have on your team. He's going to make some quarterback in college very glad he's on the field."
