​Since Jake Fromm seems poised to stay under center for Kirby Smart and ​Georgia for the foreseeable future, former 5-star recruit Justin Fields will likely transfer. 


Who saw this coming? 

Fields reportedly has Oklahoma, Florida State, and ​Ohio State high on his hypothetical l​ist.


Due to NCAA eligibility rules, Fields would normally have to sit out one season. However, if Fields exploits a loophole in the rule, he could touch down at his new school and start right away. 

Fields was the subject of ​several racial slurs earlier in the season. While that is obviously a disgusting incident, Fields could actually use it to his advantage. A player can transfer and play instantly if his transfer is "due to documented mitigating circumstances that are outside the student-athlete’s control and directly impact the health, safety and well-being of the student-athlete."


If Fields was able to prove that these slurs created an environment that made him constantly fearful and unhealthy, he could be granted a hardship waiver and could suit up as soon as next season. Fields is a premier talent at the quarterback position. It's more likely that he realizes his full potential on the field rather than warming a bench in Athens.
