Former Georgia quarterback Justin Fields announced his plans to transfer to Ohio State after Buckeyes star Dwayne Haskins revealed his intentions to turn pro.

Fields made the move to Columbus, won the starting job and earned immediate eligibility over the summer.

Now he's in the Heisman Trophy race as the Buckeyes look like legitimate College Football Playoff contenders.

With everything Fields had going on this summer, the star quarterback decided to take online classes during his first year at Ohio State.

In a recent interview with Buckeye Extra, Fields revealed he's taking online classes and hasn't seen much of the campus so far this fall.

"I can spend more time on football and studying, stuff like that...But from what I have seen, the campus is beautiful and the people around are great," Fields said.

Fields led the Buckeyes to a 4-0 start and has himself in the Heisman race after a hot start to the season.

Fields has thrown for 13 touchdowns and run for six more, a total of 19 touchdowns. The former Bulldog is on pace to break Haskins' touchdown record from 2018.

Ohio State faces its toughest test of the season on Saturday night against Nebraska. It all starts with College GameDay broadcasting from Lincoln.

Ohio State and Nebraska kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
