Georgia transfer QB Justin Fields headed to Ohio State, reports say

According to Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel, Ohio State's new star transfer quarterback Justin Fields is likely eligible for the 2019 season. He threw for 328 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions.

Fields' much-anticipated announcement gives new Ohio State coach Ryan Day a sublimely talented dual-threat passer to run his offense if Dwayne Haskins Jr. makes an expected jump to the NFL.

He will be going on an official visit this weekend enrolling in classes, which start next week. He is headed to Ohio State per a report from Letterman Row.

Fields was the subject of racially bigoted comments made by a Georgia baseball player during a September 29 win against Tennessee, which led to that player's dismissal from the program after an internal investigation.

Tesla's own internal tracking shows its deliveries were in line with or above estimates, spokesman Dave Arnold told reporters. Heading into the quarter, financial analytics firm FactSet had projected the company would manufacturer 64,900 Model 3s.

Fields entered into the NCAA Transfer Portal late last month, clearing the first hurdle towards his exit from Georgia.

The Kennesaw, Georgia-native deepens Ohio State at quarterback and sets up an intriguing competition with Tate Martell.

On Dec. 19, head coach Kirby Smart confirmed that Fields was exploring options to transfer to another program. Most expected him to take over for Jake Fromm when the time came. Both are close and have trained with quarterbacks coach Quincy Avery.

Haskins finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting this past season as a redshirt sophomore, throwing 50 touchdown passes and leading the Buckeyes to a 13-1 record and a victory in the Rose Bowl.
