More HBCU transfers to HBCUs for the win! University of Texas reliever Kamron Fields announced via Twitter that he will be transferring to HBCU (Historically Black Colleges & Universities), Texas Southern University. Although Fields will have one more year of eligibility, his presence will be noted on and off the field. Fields graduated in the spring with a degree in corporate communications and will be pursuing his masters at Texas Southern while playing baseball, according to ESPN.

“First and foremost, I’d like to thank everyone who has been a part of my journey over the last three years at the University of Texas,” Fields wrote. “I will always be grateful for my time as a Longhorn. I’ve made relationships that will last a lifetime and memories that I’ll never forget.

“When I came to campus, my only real goals were to get my degree and put myself in a position to succeed in professional baseball. But now, with racism, injustice, and inequality continuing to plague our society, I have found a new purpose.

“It’s time. It’s time for me to stand for my beliefs and represent something bigger than myself.
