  • How the college football world reacted to Justin Fields transferring to Ohio State

Fields will be enrolling at The Ohio State University and begin classes as soon as Monday in Columbus. Ultimately, Fields chose to take his talents to Ohio State. Fields announced the transfer after he was expected to visit the Ohio State campus earlier Friday. According to Michigan State Spartans head coach Tom Izzo, that was the difference when his team managed to defeat a game Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday. If Martell is going to be the starting quarterback at Ohio State, he's going to have to earn it. He is expecting to be eligible right away after submitting a waiver request to the one-year transfer ineligibility rule.

Georgia's offense used Fields as a utility option, playing him in 12 of 14 games.

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Field was relegated to backup for the sixth-ranked Bulldogs behind star sophomore Fromm this season. His 50 touchdown passes this season broke Drew Brees' single-season Big Ten mark, to go with a 70-percent completion rate and almost 5,000 passing yards. Both are close and have trained with quarterbacks coach Quincy Avery.

The high point for Fields this season came against UMass, when he threw for 121 yards, ran for 100 and scored three total touchdowns.

Haskins, who was given a first-round grade from the NFL's draft advisory board, finished third in voting for the Heisman Trophy behind quarterbacks Kyler Murray of the Oklahoma Sooners and Tua Tagovailoa of the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Fields said he would make no further comment on his transfer and referred any questions to the Ohio State sports information department.
