READ MORE: John Fields says he's still a Seahawk, but he's through playing hoops at UNCW

John Fields has decided to transfer again. He transferred to UNCW from East Carolina. Now he’s leaving UNCW in order to play elsewhere. He’s already visited Rutgers and Xavier. He will visit Miami ( ACC Miami ) tomorrow. Fields told WWAY that he looking for a winning situation. “The last chapter is for me to win. I'm checking things out, taking my time making visits, making sure that I get with a winning team and a winning coach."

At UNCW last season John Fields led the Seahawks in rebounds and blocked shots. He was second on the team in scoring. He completed all his graduation requirements earlier this month which makes him eligible to play college basketball this winter without sitting out. He says he loves UNCW fans. He says he's still a Seahawk, but the decision to leave UNCW was a career decision. As a result he won’t be playing for new UNCW head coach Buzz Peterson who replaced interim coach Brooks Lee who replaced Benny Moss this past January.

Peterson told WWAY " It's unfortunate because we were counting on him. The only thing we wish is we wanted him to tell us up front because his decision has affected our recruiting. I want people who want to be at UNCW."
