Former University of Texas-El Paso running back Joshua Fields has transferred to Georgia Southern for his third year of NCAA football.

Fields will join the Eagles as a walk-on at preseason camp that begins Friday. 

On Wednesday, GS head coach Chad Lunsford tweeted his typical tweet that he sends after getting a commit.
