Georgia’s Justin Fields transferring to Ohio State

Adjust Comment Print

Fields' most notable play of the season came in the SEC championship game loss to No. 1 Alabama, when he was used on a failed fake punt in the fourth quarter that set up the Crimson Tide's go-ahead touchdown.

Fields was the subject of racially bigoted comments made by a Georgia baseball player during a September 29 win against Tennessee, which led to that player's dismissal from the program after an internal investigation.

Fields played in 12 of 14 games in his freshman season and completed 27 of 39 passes for 328 yards, four touchdowns, and no interceptions. Fields may be getting closer to transferring to Ohio State.

We recently discussed the best options for San Francisco at No. 2 overall and concluded the best possible outcome would be a trade-down scenario with a quarterback-needy team moving up to land Haskins.

Ohio State's current quarterback, Dwyane Haskins, finished third in Heisman voting and re-wrote several Big Ten passing records this year.

This is the second consecutive season where Georgia has seen a 5-star quarterback that it signed transfer from the program. That would open the starting job.

NCAA rules would require Fields to sit out next season if he transfers, though he could request a waiver to become immediately eligible.

Three days into his tenure as Ohio State coach, Ryan Day is making a ruthless move. During the Tennessee game, Sasser was allegedly shouting racist remarks at Fields from the stands.

Here's how the college football world and fans reacted to the news, including Haskins.

With Fields gone, Fromm is Georgia's only scholarship quarterback on the roster at the moment, but reinforcements are coming.
