Redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins is expected to enter the National Football League after setting multiple records last season.
However, Georgia did not use Fields in the Sugar Bowl loss against Texas.
Three days into his tenure as Ohio State coach, Ryan Day is making a ruthless move.
The Athletic's Bruce Feldman confirmed Fields was on Ohio State's campus at the time of publication. If Fields can be what the program expects him to, Ohio State could be unsafe again in 2019.
Fields helped give Georgia coach Kirby Smart the nation's top-rated signing class past year. Tate Martel and Matthew Baldwin appear to be Fields' strongest competition on the Ohio State depth chart if he is granted immediate eligibility. As Thamel points out, this NCAA rule of an act of egregious behavior at a previous institution would make Fields immediately eligible for the upcoming season.More news: China says talks on U.S. tariff fight scheduled for Monday
The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Field was relegated to backup for the sixth-ranked Bulldogs behind star sophomore Fromm this season.
We thank Fields for everything he did at Georgia and wish him well moving forward with Ohio State as we pass him along to Buckeye Wire! Both are close and have trained with quarterbacks coach Quincy Avery.
Haskins finished as a distant third to Oklahoma's Kyler Murray and Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa in the Heisman Trophy voting, but had a fantastic first and only season as Ohio State's starter.
"Any time you get a win in this league right now, it's something", Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said. But the most impressive stat may have been that he wasn't sacked, surprising considering Ohio State's offensive line had been riddled with leaky protection and pre-snap penalties all season.
