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

Justin Fields is officially gone.

Justin Fields, one of the most coveted recruits in the 2018 signing class, has officially chose to transfer from the University of Georgia. God has blessed me with an opportunity to achieve another dream.

Cassius Winston scored 18 of his 25 points in the second half, and Nick Ward had 21 as the Spartans rallied and then pulled away late in the second half to beat Ohio State, 86-77, in Columbus, Ohio, on Saturday in a game that was closer than the final score indicated.

He played in 12 of Georgia's 14 games as a freshman but saw limited action behind sophomore starter Jake Fromm.

"After many thoughts and prayers with family and close friends, I have made a decision to declare for the 2019 National Football League draft". Freshman tight end Luke Ford also announced that he would be transferring, as he will head to IL.

Oklahoma, Florida State and UCLA also reportedly were in the mix for the 6-3, 225-pounder from Kennesaw, Georgia, who was rated the No. 1 dual-threat QB in the nation in the class of 2018 and the No. 2 prospect overall nationally in 247 Sports' Composite Rankings.

Therefore, Fields' attorney, Tom Mars can present a strong case that Fields would never have felt comfortable playing baseball at Georgia. 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.

He is coming off a season in which he accounted for 54 touchdowns for the Buckeyes. Fields did not start a game for Georgia this season. If Fields is eligible, he would compete with Tate Martell for the starting job next season.

There's no timetable for a ruling on Fields' eligibility.
