“Yeah, I hope so,” Mater Dei coach Kevin Kiernan said. “You never know. I know the family is going through the process with all their kids. Hopefully, that will work out. I hope so. That would be a great thing.
“We lose quite a bit from last year. I think anything that could help us out would be great.”
New Lakers coach Mike Brown and his wife recently became the guardians of Fields, a 5-9 guard who is a native of Canada. Fields befriended the Browns through their AAU associations.
Fields will be moving with the Browns to Southern California. Brown’s sons, Elijah and Cameron, and Fields are in the process of enrolling at Mater Dei.
Fields averaged 26.5 point per game for Oak Hill Academy of Mouth of Wilson, Va., last season. Mater Dei lost Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, the Gatorade national player of the year, and Alexyz Vaioletama to graduation, but the Monarchs return All-County point guard Jordan Adams from a team that has won back-to-back national championships.
“From everything I’ve heard she’s a tremendous player,” Kiernan said. “She’s a great kid to have. I know Mater Dei is excited about the possibility of the Brown family coming.
“It’s all good stuff. I just hope it actually comes true.”
