NCAA Grants Ohio State Quarterback Justin Fields Immediate Eligibility

"My overall experience at UGA was fully consistent with UGA's commitment to diversity and inclusion", Fields said.

Fields, from Kennesaw, Georgia, is now a sophomore and enrolled in classes at Ohio State.

Now that he is eligible to play in 2019, the Buckeyes can move ahead with a full-fledged quarterback battle between Fields and Matthew Baldwin. My sister is a softball player at UGA. "Contributing to this great sport is always a privilege, and I will miss the time with my colleagues". "I also want to express my appreciation for the NCAA for its assistance in getting this matter resolved efficiently and with such a positive outcome for Justin".

This comes after Fields announced his decision to transfer to Ohio State last month saying, he appreciates Georgia's fans and football coaching staff for all they "have done to help me progress as a quarterback", but after thoughtful consideration "I've chose to transfer to Ohio State University where I will continue to pursue my undergraduate degree and play football for the Buckeyes".

I will not be speaking about my transfer again.

And unlike the case of 2018 Heisman finalist Dwayne Haskins, fields will be able to grow and thrive as a full-time starter for more than just one season. Both players are in their second years, but Fields will be a true sophomore and Baldwin a redshirt freshman.

During his limited freshman campaign, Fields was the subject of a racist comment from Georgia baseball player Adam Sasser. He also threw four touchdowns.

Can Ohio State stop the sting of Clemson and Alabama titles? Hurts needed 70 pass attempts to get to his number and Mond needed 415.

Ohio State today announced the NCAA has approved Fields' request for a waiver of the rule requiring transfers to sit out a year.

Although it is still unclear as to why the former Harrison High School superstar ever left The Peach State, if it was more than Jake Fromm locking down the Georgia starting quarterback spot, that chapter is officially over and it's now time to get ready for The Justin Fields Show at Ohio State in 2019.
