Accolades3x Parade All-American, Consensus First Team All-American (Parade, USA Today, McDonald's). Third All-Time leading scorer in Chicago Public League history (2,619)

The 6'3" guard played high school ball with Kevin Garnett at Farragut Academy and was a legend in the playgrounds of Chicago. Ronnie could jump out of the gym with his 50" vertical. He averaged 34 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, four steals and four blocks a game in high school—no, that's not a typo. KG once said, that Ronnie was better than him, but Fields never got a chance to prove his teammate right. He broke his neck in a car accident during his senior year and when he finally healed he couldn't get into a DI school because of his grades—the same reason why KG skipped college.
