Here Are The Schools In Contention For 247Sports' New No. 1 Player

There is a new No. 1 recruit in the country according to 247Sports.

247Sports updated its rankings for the class of 2018, and unveiled a new No. 1 player: five-star quarterback Justin Fields.

Fields, who plays for Kennesaw (Ga.) Harrison, recently won the MVP at Nike's The Opening in Oregon. He stole the show and drew rave reviews from the talent evaluators in attendance.

Fields was committed to Penn State for some time, but re-opened his recruitment on June 6. Since then, he has made four unofficial visits and has seen six programs in particular step forward in contention for his services.

The six schools that currently have a shot at landing Fields are Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia and USC.

Here's what his 247Sports Crystal Ball looks like:

There are still more than six months until Signing Day 2018. Expect Fields' recruitment to drag on for a while.

He's a major coup for whoever lands him.
