Former Northwestern running back Arby Fields, who left the Wildcats in December, texted me Sunday night to say he's signed with LSU.
Fields, who played both football and baseball at NU, texted that he and LSU coaches have discussed the possibility of Fields playing both sports. But Fields is taking a "we'll see" approach about playing the two sports.
Fields transferred to Cypress (Calif.) College in January and played baseball for the Chargers this spring, leading the team in nearly every offensive category.
"I appreciate all my true fans and I'm off to bigger and better things in my career," Fields wrote in a text message."
