    reminds me a little of former stAte QB Corey Leonard. The only thing I see from his video that I am sure will improve is staring down receivers. College DB's are going to be much faster than HS guys. He will have to get better at looking down at his 2nd and 3rd options and not just immediately throwing to his first option. I realize that some of you have seen him live and have seen more than the few minutes of video, but that is the only weakness that I saw on video, the other thing is and this is nitpicking is that he seemed to throw off his back foot a few too many times. That will get you in trouble in D-1 football.

    I think, in regards to this entire staff, I'm most excited about getting Juluke here to see what kind of recruiting in roads he can make in the NOLA area. We all know he is known to be a solid recruiter there and we also know we've not done particularly well there.

    Leonard was a bigger kid, but I get what you are saying. I don't want to put Fields in the Hall of Fame yet before playing a down at UL, but he is the best looking pure QB prospect to commit to this program in a while. I'm excited with his early, I think it is a sign of what kind of class Napier and his staff can put together this year.

    Its also exciting to see what Napier can do with a Pro style QB he turned Garrett Grayson into a baller

    You mean there is another way to throw the football? lol

    He looks pretty good, but it is absolutely GREAT that we are getting a quality recruit out of New Orleans area. This guy is listed as a top La. QB, top 30 overall. You know he is bound to have P5's coming after him this season. Can he stay committed..... I like that he shows leadership, 1st commit, and in his comments about wanting to get started and helping out with other recruits. A good start to our recruiting.

    I've heard outside of an SEC or Big 12 offer, he is set on UL. I don't know how accurate that is, but I'm not concerned about a Houston or comparable program coming in on him.

    This is where the early signing period will help us out.

    That's good to hear. If he actually does get involved in bringing in more recruits, that will bind him even more to the program. Looking forward to see who else commits, and see how well this staff can do.

    If he plays like Corey Leonard, we're going to win a lot of football games.

    After watching his video looks like a good pick up for Nape and staff. Mark my words on this, Lafayette parish will have 2 QBs, at the 2 catholic schools in town, in the class of 2020, every bit as good as Fields. I have watched the Holstein kid on several occasions at STM, and saw the TC sophomore last year against STM JV, and he appears to be every bit as good, as Holstein. Some fans of TC say, he got a stronger arm, and is a more accurate passer than the Sr he backed up, who is now a preferred walk on. You heard it hear first.

    Not so fast my friend. I know one of those 2 very very well, and he's got lots of work and growing in that regard. If healthy he will be on the same field as Fields in September. Right now he is recovering from 2 offseason surgeries.

    I know of one local receiver they invited to spring practice, watched his spring practice, and invited him to the Cajun camp, and they are very high on him. His camp performances will be huge for his recruitment. He is also invited to Tulane and Tech camps, and Mizzuo visited him in school a few weeks back.
