Former five-star quarterback Justin Fields is transferring to Ohio State. Letterman Row first reported the news, and 247Sports' Ohio State site Bucknuts confirmed it.
The move had been rumored since it became public that Fields would be transferring from Georgia following his freshman season. Fields will be enrolling at Ohio State for the spring semester, which will allow him to participate with the team in their offseason program and during spring practice this year. Oklahoma, Florida State and UCLA were reportedly also being considered by the former five-star prospect.
What may have given Ohio State the edge was Fields' relationship with current Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins. Both players train with Quincy Avery, a QB coach based out of Atlanta.
