Draft Scout Justin Fields News
01/04/19 - Quarterback Justin Fields confirmed Friday night he is transferring to Ohio State following one season as Georgia's backup. Fields' much-anticipated announcement gives new Ohio State coach Ryan Day a sublimely talented dual-threat passer to run his offense if Dwayne Haskins Jr. makes an expected jump to the NFL. Fields decided to transfer from Georgia after he was unable to beat out starter Jake Fromm. Fields announced the transfer after he was expected to visit the Ohio State campus earlier Friday. 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." Fields' arrival at Ohio State is huge for Day, who took over as coach Wednesday after Urban Meyer's retirement. Fields was the overall No. 2 national prospect in the 2018 recruiting class and was highly sought after he announced his intention to transfer last month. Fields helped give Georgia coach Kirby Smart the nation's top-rated signing class last year.

12/18/18 - QB Justin Fields, a freshman who was rated the nation's top recruit for 2018, has informed Georgia of his intention to transfer to another school, according to a Monday night report by USA Today. However, ESPN.com and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Fields' family said the quarterback has not decided whether to transfer, and is only exploring that possibility. The Toledo Blade then reported that Ohio State is the front-runner for Fields if he decides to transfer. He spent his true freshman season as the primary backup to sophomore starter Jake Fromm.
11/18/18 - Georgia's playmakers feasted as if lined up at an all-you-can-eat buffet. No worries. There was plenty of offense for everyone. Freshman Justin Fields threw two scoring passes and ran for another touchdown, Tyler Simmons had rushing and receiving scores, and No. 5 Georgia protected its playoff hopes by overwhelming UMass 66-27 on Saturday in one of the biggest offensive games in school history. Another freshman, James Cook ran for 76 yards on only three carries, including his first two career scoring runs, from 26 and 27 yards. "Everybody gets equal opportunity," Simmons said. Georgia gained 701 yards, the second-highest total in school history, including 426 yards on the ground. The Bulldogs never punted. Coach Kirby Smart said the Bulldogs "overpowered a team that's smaller than us." - AP College Football
09/30/18 - There wasn't much offensive flair in what Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm described as a "ground and pound" game against Tennessee. There was, however, a new mix at quarterback and that may have been the most notable action in No. 2 Georgia's 38-12 victory over the Vols on Saturday. Fromm's backup, freshman Justin Fields, played a bigger role, coming onto the field in each of the final three quarters. After Fields had scoring runs of 12 and 15 yards, coach Kirby Smart was asked about his plans at quarterback the remainder of the season. "The plan is there is no plan," Smart said. He repeated the "no plan" line when asked a follow-up question. The real plan may be to run the ball. Georgia outrushed Tennessee 251-66. D'Andre Swift ran for two touchdowns, including a late 14-yarder to ice the game. Otherwise, the Bulldogs leaned on their defense. Georgia (5-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) scored touchdowns on its last drive of the first half and the opening possession after halftime but otherwise couldn't maintain momentum. - AP College Football
