LSU Tigers

The LSU Tigers already took one Ohio State transfer quarterback and helped make him a National Champion, Heisman Trophy winner and the first overall pick in the NFL Draft. Why not try it again? I know LSU likes Myles Brennan, but come on, this is Justin Fields.

LSU no longer has Joe Brady as their passing game coordinator, but veteran NFL coach Scott Linehan has been brought in to take over the role. Linehan is a well-respected offensive mind who could be an ideal coach to get Fields ready for the next level. Plus, he would have star wide receiver, Ja’Marr Chase, to throw the ball to.

Alabama Crimson Tide

If Fields is able and decides to transfer from Ohio State, he will likely be looking for a strong and stable program with good talent around him. Look no further than the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Alabama seems happy with Mac Jones as their starting quarterback, but I have a hard time believing that Nick Saban would say no to Justin Fields if he wanted to come to Tuscaloosa. Fields would be playing for the best head coach in college football, behind one of the best offensive lines in the nation and throwing passing to the dynamic duo of DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle.

Adding Fields to the mix would likely make Alabama the overwhelming favorite to win the National Championship. It is easy to see why this pairing would be appealing to both sides.
