Big news in the college football world. Justin Fields came into Georgia as the #1 recruit from the class of 2018 and will leave as the second straight 5-star QB to transfer from Georgia under Kirby Smart.
You can’t blame Kirby for Jacob Eason and now Justin Fields for transferring. When you have a phenomenal QB like Jake Fromm it’s going to be hard to keep everyone happy. Smart tried to get Fields involved as much as he could throughout the season, but it never really worked.

Sources told ESPN that Fields might consider Florida State, Ohio State and Oklahoma if he decides to leave.
Any of those three teams would be incredibly happy to welcome Justin Fields to town. The dual-threat QB was regarded as one of the top prospects in the past decade.
