On Friday, Ohio State's transfer quarterback Justin Fields received a waiver from the NCAA that declared ​him eligible to play in the upcoming season. Coming from the SEC, the former 5-star recruit was naturally well-versed in the long-term rivalry between OSU and the Michigan Wolverines. Check out what the newest Buckeye had to say about the eternal hate between the Big Ten rivals: 

“I definitely knew it was a big rivalry, but coming here and actually seeing all the Ms crossed out, it’s definitely way bigger than I thought it would be,” he said. “I’ll definitely be excited for that upcoming game."


​Fields, the No.2 ranked QB in the 2018 class, refused to comment on what his new teammates have told him about the rivalry. "That’s kind of private," he said, "but just know there’s a lot of hate for that team up north."

We'll make a wild prediction and say that Fields will fit in just fine in Columbus. 


He'll have plenty of time to get ready for the Wolverines, as the Big Ten foes aren't set to square off until Nov. 30.
