Justin Fields will transfer to Ohio State

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

While Fields would likely have to sit a season if he does enroll at Ohio State, he has a possible out to get on the field next year.

Quarterback Justin Fields confirmed Friday night he is transferring to Ohio State following one season as Georgia's backup. Martell, like Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm, had his senior season documented by Netflix for the show QB1: Beyond the Lights.

"I appreciate what coach Smart and the UGA football coaching staff have done to help me progress as a quarterback and for their patience and understanding while I thoughtfully considered my future as a student-athlete", Fields said on his Twitter account. Riley Ridley, Mecole Hardman, Isaac Nauta and Elijah Holyfield all declared for the 2019 NFL Draft. He threw for 328 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions.

Haskins thanked his coaches, teammates, friends, family and fans for his experience at Ohio State.

Haskins leapt onto the scene as a surprise star, replacing graduate J.T. Barrett as Ohio State's starter in 2018 and lighting up the Big Ten in an unusually volatile season for the Buckeyes.

If declared eligible, Fields would compete to become Ohio State's starting quarterback in 2019 if Dwayne Haskins declares for the NFL Draft as expected. Day has been with the program as a quarterback coach and offensive coordinator since 2017.

Fields hopes to become eligible immediately at Ohio State, where he would have 3 years of college eligibility remaining.

Georgia opens the 2019 season against Vanderbilt on August 31.
