The Georgia Bulldogs narrowly missed out on another berth into the College Football Playoff this season after losing to Alabama in the SEC title game. Georgia is set to take on Texas next week in the Sugar Bowl on New Year's Day.

The Bulldogs are led by sophomore quarterback Jake Fromm, but have a capable backup in Justin Fields. Fields, however, might not be with the team for much longer.

The former five-star recruit revealed his intentions to transfer from the program if he finds a suitable option. According to a new report from Bleacher Report, Ohio State is the odds-on favorite to land the Georgia freshman.

From Bleacher Report:

As a whole, Ohio State would love to add a player of Fields' caliber as the program transitions from Urban Meyer to Ryan Day. Fields shouldn't expect to receive a warm welcome from everyone, though.

"Word of advice," tweeted backup quarterback Tate Martell, the current front-runner to replace Haskins. "Don't swing and miss ... especially not your second time."

If Fields chooses the Buckeyes, well, it's on.

Odds: 2/1

Fields can't go wrong with a transfer to Oklahoma or Ohio State where Lincoln Riley and Ryan Day have proved they know how to get the most out of a quarterback.

Stay tuned.
