**Fields is a combo guard who can really fill it up. He shoots the 3 ball, mid range, floaters & attacks the rim with aggression. His PG skills are currently under rated but he is working hard to sharpen the skills necessary to run a team.
A day after doing this interview with A.W. Robinson he verbally committed to Weber State in the Big Sky, cancelling all other official visits. He intends to study communication, a major that the Utah school is well respected for. Congratulations to Shai & his family.-Max Ivany **
