Two new college football programs have been named potential destinations for Georgia five-star quarterback transfer Justin Fields.

Fields, who is planning on playing in the Bulldogs' Sugar Bowl contest against Texas, has been added into the NCAA's transfer portal and is expected to transfer following the postseason.

Ohio State has been mentioned as the favorite for Fields, who would reportedly like to replace Dwayne Haskins under center in Columbus.

The Buckeyes reportedly are not the only contender, though.

DawgNation reports that a couple of other major programs have emerged as options:

A source with direct knowledge of the situation said Fields is strongly considering Ohio State, but also has interest in Oklahoma, UCF and UCLA.

Oklahoma has been mentioned along with Ohio State in multiple reports, but this is the first we're hearing about UCLA and UCF.

Fields is expected to petition the NCAA to get immediate eligibility in 2019.
