After sitting out his sophomore season due to a transfer rule, Mark Fields got back on the field in 2013. He had a big year on the field and his offer list continues to grow...

Mark Fields is now just one offer away from double-digits.

Georgia offered him last week and that gives him nine.

"Georgia came through and offered me and it is another big offer for me," said Fields. "I have been to UGA a couple of times for camps (eighth and ninth grade), but I have not visited since.

"I know it is a top program and I will definitely visit them next year. I see Georgia as a top school for me and they could be a top three school for me when I get that far."

Other than Georgia, Clemson, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Ohio State, South Carolina, Tennessee, and UNC Charlotte have also offered Fields.

The four-star junior cornerback out of Cornelius (N.C.) Hough attended a couple of games this season and one was at Clemson and the other at South Carolina.

He enjoyed both trips.

"The South Carolina fans are always hyped for the games and it makes it a nice SEC environment. It is always loud and it has to be one of the best environments to play in.

"Clemson is an ACC school, but the atmosphere is like it is an SEC school. I was there for the Georgia game and it was packed. The fans were so loud and it was a lot like South Carolina to me."

A number of other top programs are showing interest in the 5-foot-11, 186 pound prospect. Auburn and Ole Miss may be close to offering him and if it is one of those schools or someone different,Fields will give them a strong look.

"I am really open to everyone that offers me," said Fields. "I do not have any favorites right now and I just want to see who offers me. I will take my time, take a lot of visits next year, and just let everything play out."

Fields went on to say, "If I had to name favorites right now out of the schools that have offered me, they would be South Carolina, Georgia, and Clemson. I would say Tennessee could be in there too."

The No. 17 corner in the 2015 class is looking to "enjoy" the recruiting process. He plans to take all five official visits next year, then make the best decision for himself.

He plans to start those visits early in 2014 when Junior Days roll around.

Fields had 45 tackles and three interceptions in 2013.
