Former Louisville Star Deletes Controversial Tweet After NFL Draft

He said he regretted where he first attended college.

Devonte Fields, a standout at Louisville this past season, began his college career at TCU.

The elite defensive end was the Big 12's defensive player of the year as a true freshman in 2012 and was the league's preseason player of the year in 2014. However, he was dismissed from TCU's program before that season after being charged with misdemeanor assault stemming from an alleged incident with his girlfriend in which he threatened and hit her. He later reached a deal to get the charge dropped.

Fields then went to a JUCO before committing to Louisville, where he starred for the past two seasons.

After going undrafted in this year's NFL Draft, Fields tweeted the following.

The tweet was later deleted and replaced with these:

Fields will likely sign a good undrafted free agent contract.
