Suspended TCU defensive end Devonte Fields has backed out of his plan to enroll at Stephen F. Austin after a TCU committee ruled he was ineligible to receive a transfer waiver, the school announced Friday.

"After originally agreeing to grant a release to Devonte Fields, which would allow him to enroll and play football at Stephen F. Austin, Texas Christian University has since convened a committee and declared that Fields' violations of the student honor code has warranted his suspension from the school," Stephen F. Austin said in a statement.

Stephen F. Austin said it would make Fields ineligible, prohibiting him from participating in football-related activities there for at least one year.

"In light of these developments, Fields has decided not to enroll at SFA," the school said.

TCU officials said only Friday night that Fields' status with the Big 12 school was unchanged.

Fields, the Big 12 preseason defensive player of the year, announced on his Twitter account Wednesday that he was leaving TCU to join Stephen F. Austin, a Football Championship Subdivision program.

Stephen F. Austin confirmed the transfer Thursday with the intention of having him join the team immediately, but that plan fell apart in less than 24 hours.
