New Ohio State Quarterback Justin Fields can suit up for the Buckeyes this upcoming season. I am still close friends with many of my UGA teammates. Fields then entered his named in the transfer portal just before early signing day, and officially transferred to Ohio State on January 5. "I also want to express my appreciation to the NCAA for its assistance in getting this matter resolved efficiently and with such a positive outcome for Justin".
I'm sure OSU fans are cracking beers right now and celebrating.
Ohio State's 2019 contingent increases the number of Buckeyes who have been invited to the combine to 60 over the last seven seasons, including a nation's best of 43 (tied with Alabama) players in the last four seasons. "It is imperative for me to have 100 percent focus in helping our new coach [Ryan Day] with his transition at The Ohio State University this fall". "That's the main thing I was looking for".
Also represented by Mars, while Wolverines fans had perhaps hoped that it might be 2020 before MI had to go up against the top dual-threat QB in the 2018 recruiting class, it looks like they'll get their first taste of Fields this year, as the Kennesaw (GA) native was just ruled immediately eligible by the NCAA on Friday afternoon.
I will not be speaking about my transfer again. Both players are in their second years, but Fields will be a true sophomore and Baldwin a redshirt freshman.
Fields played in 12 of Georgia's 14 games in 2018 but did not start in any of them. He also ran the ball 42 times for 266 yards (6.3 ypc) and four touchdowns. Hurts needed 70 pass attempts to get to his number and Mond needed 415.
Although it is still unclear as to why the former Harrison High School superstar ever left The Peach State, if it was more than Jake Fromm locking down the Georgia starting quarterback spot, that chapter is officially over and it's now time to get ready for The Justin Fields Show at Ohio State in 2019.
The dual-threat star quarterback is insanely talented.
Since McCoy had already signed his National Letter of Intent and enrolled early at USC last month, he might have to sit out one year because of the transfer to Texas.
