Justin Fields is reportedly planning on transferring out of the Georgia football program and there’s already a major school emerging as the frontrunner.
ESPN reported on Monday night that Ohio State was one of three schools the five-star quarterback planned on looking at. The Toledo Blade reported this morning that the Buckeyes were the favorite to land him.
Fields has been quiet on social media for a couple of weeks, but his most-recent tweet is fairly telling.
The dual-threat quarterback’s most-recent tweet was a response to none other than Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

Fields’ interest in Ohio State is reportedly mostly due to the Buckeyes’ new head coach, Ryan Day. The personal quarterback coach for Fields also works with Haskins and he’s reportedly extremely high on the Buckeyes’ new leader.
The transfer decision has yet to be made official, though. Stay tuned.
