Previous five-star quarterback Justin Fields is exchanging to Ohio State. Fields made the declaration on Twitter Friday evening following numerous reports that surfaced before in the day.
The move had been supposed since it wound up open that Fields would exchange from Georgia following his first year recruit season. Fields will enlist at Ohio State for the spring semester, which will enable him to take an interest with the group in their offseason program and amid spring practice this year. Oklahoma, Florida State and UCLA were supposedly likewise being considered by the previous five-star prospect.
What may have given Ohio State the edge was Fields’ association with current Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins. The two players train with Quincy Avery, a QB mentor based out of Atlanta.
Fields was the No. 2 in general player in the 2018 enrolling class as per 247Sports’ Composite Rankings, completing behind current Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence. He didn’t win the beginning employment in Athens, in any case, as Jake Fromm clutched the position throughout the entire season. Fields saw some time, in any case, showing up in 12 diversions. He tossed 39 passes, finishing 69.2 percent of them for 328 yards and four touchdowns without any capture attempts. He likewise shown his capacities as a rusher, conveying the ball multiple times for 266 yards and four touchdowns. With Fromm returning for another season, Fields would have had a troublesome time displacing him from his beginning job, and as opposed to hold up one more year, he chose to search for greener fields somewhere else.
Obviously, nothing will be ensured to him at Ohio State, either. Haskins presently can’t seem to openly report his gets ready for 2019, however most expect he’ll enter the NFL Draft. That would leave Tate Martell as the probable most loved to arrive the beginning job for Ohio State in 2019, particularly since Fields will probably need to sit out the 2019 season because of exchange rules. Chances are Fields will advance that decision, yet there’s no real way to know whether he’ll win the case. Ohio State additionally has Matthew Baldwin, who was a four-star QB in its 2018 class who redshirted this season.
