Justin Fields remains a part of the Georgia football program, but the five-star quarterback is reportedly planning a transfer.

The former No. 1 dual-threat quarterback recruit in the 2018 class appears to have a preferred transfer destination, too.

Fields, who's been linked to several major programs, reportedly is interested in one big one.

ESPN is reporting that Fields is interested in transferring to Ohio State.

Sources told ESPN on Wednesday that Fields is interested in transferring to Ohio State, as star quarterback Dwayne Haskins is expected to enter April's NFL draft. Florida State and Oklahoma are other potential destinations for Fields, sources said.

Fields, from Kennesaw, Georgia, is expected to apply for a hardship waiver from the NCAA. If granted, the waiver would make him eligible to play in the 2019 season.

Fields has also been linked to Florida State, Oklahoma and Penn State, among other programs.

Stay tuned.
