Justin Fields Makes It Official, Announces Transfer to Ohio State

Justin Fields Georgia Quarterback

Reports were flying on Friday that Georgia freshman quarterback Justin Fields was transferring to Ohio State. Fields confirmed the reports via Twitter Friday evening.

Fields will now attempt to gain immediate eligibility and compete to be Ohio State’s starting quarterback in 2019.

As a rising sophomore, he will have three years of eligibility, even if he is forced to sit out the 2019 season.

  1. I am not so sure Haskins is going pro – Fields is going to have to sit a year – it is pretty thin for him to get a pass on that. So he sits a year – Dwayne wins the Heisman and he learns the offense. Sound good? Then Tate starts and he transfers to Delaware or Georgia Southern.

  2. I wonder how this will affect recruiting future quarterbacks over the next two years with Martell, Baldwin, and now Fields on the team. Fields may have to sit out 2019. Haskins hasn’t announced yet, but I’m willing to bet he is going pro. Haskins and Chris Fields have been friends for years and he wouldn’t be transferring to Ohio State if he knew Dwayne was staying for another year.
