Cornelius (N.C.) Hough 2019 cornerback Tyus Fields, the brother of Clemson cornerback Mark Fields, visited Clemson frequently last season and has become a familiar face around the campus.
Tyus returned again on March 4 for the Tigers’ junior day with teammate Nolan Groulx.
“I thought it was really impressive with all the new stuff,” Tyus said of the visit. “It felt good (being back.) Nice to see some familiar faces.”
Defensive coordinator Brent Venables is one of the familiar faces he was able to catch up with.
“He was talking about what goes on in and out of Clemson,” Tyus said, “and how things are.”
Tyus said the biggest highlight of his experience was seeing Clemson’s completed new football complex, which was under construction during his visits last season.
“I think the facilities are great,” he said. “What stands out the most is the new facility.”
Clemson was the first school to offer Tyus last May before N.C. State and Tennessee followed suit in June. Penn State and North Carolina handed him his other offers in January.
Where does Clemson stand right now?
“Clemson stands with all of them,” Tyus said. “Each school is showing love.”
Tyus plans to take a trip to Penn State next.
As a sophomore in 2016, the 5-foot-10, 170-pounder recorded 61 tackles, three interceptions and 13 pass breakups. He also had 297 rushing yards and seven touchdowns offensively.
