FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Suspended TCU defensive end Devonte Fields posted on his Twitter account he plans to transfer to Stephen F. Austin, an FCS school where the preseason Big 12 defensive player of the year could be eligible to play this season.
Fields posted his intention on his protected Twitter account on Wednesday night, then confirmed in a text message to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that "it's true."
On a profile portion of Fields' Twitter page that is visible to the public was the phrase "from TCU to SFA, just trying to achieve my goal in life."
Fields last month surrendered to authorities on a misdemeanor assault warrant amid allegations that he threatened his ex-girlfriend and punched her.
Fields remained "separated" from the university after indicating he met with school officials Tuesday.
