  • Bringing in Justin Fields is ruthless but that’s how it should be at Ohio State

Fields will be enrolling at The Ohio State University and begin classes as soon as Monday in Columbus. Multiple sources told The Athletic that things were looking good for Ohio State to land Fields, and given.

It is believed that Fields also was interested in transferring to Oklahoma, Florida State or UCLA.

Three days into his tenure as Ohio State coach, Ryan Day is making a ruthless move. In his only season at Georgia, Fields appeared in every game but the Sugar Bowl after he made his decision to transfer.

Clearly, there is going to be a premium price to be paid for the chance to land the draft's top quarterback, regardless of which team pays it.

Fields entered into the NCAA Transfer Portal late last month, clearing the first hurdle towards his exit from Georgia.


The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Field was relegated to backup for the sixth-ranked Bulldogs behind star sophomore Fromm this season. His most significant playing time, though, came in lopsided victories against nonconference opponents.

In his first year as the Buckeyes' starting quarterback, Haskins threw for 4,831 yards with 50 touchdown passes and eight interceptions.

The idea seems to be if Fields gets the hardship waiver and can play immediately, he would be the favorite to start for the Buckeyes next season.

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.

"Any time you get a win in this league right now, it's something", Michigan State Spartans coach Tom Izzo said.
