Justin Fields Makes It Official, Announces Transfer to Ohio State

Ohio State Gets Even Richer With Justin Fields

Multiple reports confirm that No. 5 Georgia's back-up quarterback and former 5-star recruit Justin Fields will transfer to Ohio State.

Fields was rated a five star dual-threat quarterback by 247 Sports and verbally committed to Georgia in October 2017. The transfer would not be official until he attends spring semester classes, which begin Monday. He was the nation's No. 2 quarterback in the 2018 class and the No. 2 overall prospect. He appeared in 12 of the Bulldogs 14 games this season, with Florida and Texas being the only two games were he did not play.

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