The Schools In Contention For 5-Star QB Justin Fields

The No. 1 dual-threat quarterback is drawing serious interest from a ton of schools.

The recruitment of the top quarterback recruit in the 2018 class is heating up.

Justin Fields, a five-star dual-threat quarterback and former Penn State commit, was believed to be seriously considering Auburn, Georgia, Florida and Florida State.

More schools might be coming into play, though.

Fields recently visited Alabama, according to a report, and he tweeted that he had recently visited a scholarship offer from USC.

There's also this, from Rivals.com recruiting guru Mike Farrell:

Now, this is where things get interesting. Some sources tell me he’s a silent commitment to Georgia and has already told Kirby Smart he’s coming. Others feel that Florida State has taken the lead after Fields recently visited with Jimbo Fisher at camp, and still others think the Gators have the edge because he’s been there at least three times now and the opportunity to play right away is obvious. And still others think a return trip to Los Angeles, where he has some family, is in the works before a final decision is made.

Where do I think he’ll end up? No clue. This is one of those situations where only those very close to Fields know what is going on and everyone seems to be hearing what they want to hear. My best guess is still Florida, but I seem to be in the minority there.

Recruiting is a crazy world and it doesn't get much crazier than the recruitment of an elite quarterback.
