Justin Fields, now former quarterback for Georgia, confirms he is transferring to Ohio State.

Fields issued a statement on his Twitter account in which he said his one season at Georgia "has given me the opportunity to refine my skills under great coaches and to play with incredibly talented teammates who've become like brothers to me". He finished the season with 42 rushes for 266 yards and four rushing touchdowns and threw for 328 yards and four passing touchdowns.

With Fields heading to Ohio State, it appears that he will be in a competition with former 4-star quarterback Tate Martell, as Ohio State's 2018 starter, Dwyane Haskins, appears headed to the National Football League draft.
