These four teams make the most sense for Justin Fields if he decides to transfer from Ohio State.
The Big Ten and PAC-12 shutting down their fall sports season will lead to many difficult decisions for football players. Top-tier 2021 NFL Draft prospects like Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields could easily step away from the playing field for a year and prepare for the draft.
That being said, do not be surprised if we see some players transfer out of their current universities in order to play the 2020 season and show more for NFL teams. Fields stands out as one of the premier players to watch in this scenario.
Justin Fields is no stranger to the transfer game. After originally landing at Georgia out of high school, Fields transferred after just one season with the Bulldogs, moving on to Ohio State. Fields dominated as the Buckeyes’ starting quarterback last season, tossing 41 touchdowns to only three interceptions, and piling on another 10 rushing touchdowns.
Simply put, he was one of the most dynamic players in college football last year and a 2020 season without Justin Fields would be less than ideal.
If the SEC, ACC and Big 12 do end up playing their 2020 seasons and the NCAA allows players from the Big Ten and PAC-12 to transfer, Fields stands out as an obvious target for nearly any team. I mean, besides Clemson, who already has Trevor Lawrence under center, Fields would be an immediate upgrade at the most important position on the field for any college football team.
If Justin Fields were to transfer, the move would immediately reshape the 2020 college football season and make whichever team he lands with an instant contender.
The most likely scenario is that Fields sits out and prepares himself for the 2021 NFL Draft. That being said, he could certainly benefit from seeing the field and getting more games on tape for NFL teams. It may not be the most likely option for Fields, but I would not count a transfer out of the equation. Where would he end up? Let’s take a look at the most likely options for the young signal-caller.
