Kentucky’s football program has recently sent out over a hundred offers, according to one recruiting website. Along with the hundred plus offers there are even a lot more prospects that UK has shown high interest in. Today we are going to take a look into UK prospect Tony Fields out of Tallahassee, FL that plays for the Amos P. Godby High School. Tony plays safety and is listed at 5’11” and weighs 185 lbs. Tony currently is shown to have offers from Mississippi, Mississippi State, Missouri, N.C. State and TCU. Amos P. Godby produces a lot of D-1 talent ever year and currently Tony is team mates with Deion Singleton, De’Eric Culver and Jake Pugh which all three hold UK offers. Here recently I got to ask Tony a few questions for Wildcat Blue Nation and here is a little look into Tony Fields on and off the field.
I heard that you was planning on being at UK’s last JR day but cannot find anything confirming whether or not you were on campus. If not, do you plan on still visiting in the future?
“No, I did not get the chance to go to Kentucky’s last junior day, but I do plan on coming sometime this spring or summer.”
What is your impression of the new coaching staff at UK?
“I like the new coaching staff for Kentucky. I have a couple of connections to some of the coaches. I know Coach Ansley from when he was at Tennessee. Mark Stoops was my recruiting coach for FSU.”
What do you think of the Big Blue Nation, did they play a role in your recruitment?
“They play a huge role in my recruitment. I think that it is very important to know that the school that I am going to have a great fan base. We play for the fans. The fans pay to come see you play, so I think it is important to have a connection with them.”
I know it is early in your recruiting process, what do you think of it?
“It is very stressful and fun at the same time. It is cool to visit the schools that I have been watching my whole life. It is a dream come true. All of the schools are great and offer something different. If I could I would play for every school, but I know I cannot do that. I can only pick one school, so all I can do is pray and go wherever I feel I could be the most successful as a player and person.”
Do you have any goals or things you want to improve on during your off time?
“I want to improve everything. My speed, coverage, and strength are all things that can never be perfect, I can always improve.”
What do you think you can offer to team?
“Winning attitude, effort, I make my teammates better, intelligence, awareness, coverage, tackling, instincts, leadership, and being a play maker.”
You play on both sides of the ball. What is your favorite position?
“Safety. I think playing safety allows me to use all of the abilities that God has blessed me. It is just more natural to my style of play.”
