  • Ohio State Gets Even Richer With Justin Fields

- Just over a year after he committed to Georgia in a highly publicized announcement, quarterback Justin Fields has reportedly left the team and transferred to Ohio State.

Fields came to Georgia out of Harrison High School in Kennesaw.

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Fields completed 27-of-39 passes for 328 yards and four touchdowns as a freshman.

Haskins, who led Ohio State to a Big Ten title, win in the Rose Bowl and was a finalist for the Heisman, told the site that Fields is "a freak of nature".

He will be going on an official visit this weekend enrolling in classes, which start next week. If he gets it, he and Martell will battle it out for the starting spot. Martell, like Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm, had his senior season documented by Netflix for the show QB1: Beyond the Lights.


Fields' arrival at Ohio State is huge for Day, who took over as coach Wednesday after Urban Meyer's retirement.

Fields entered into the NCAA Transfer Portal late last month, clearing the first hurdle towards his exit from Georgia. He is expecting to be eligible right away after submitting a waiver request to the one-year transfer ineligibility rule.

He is coming off a season in which he accounted for 54 touchdowns for the Buckeyes.

Haskins, who broke several single-season Big Ten and school rushing records and was third in Heisman Trophy voting, said after the Rose Bowl on Tuesday that Fields had contacted him about whether he planned to enter the National Football League draft.

Fields said he would make no further comment on his transfer and referred any questions to the Ohio State sports information department.
