Fields started playing for the Georgia as an exciting talent and have played 12 games in this season. During this tenure, he threw 328 yards and included 4 touchdowns . He further ran 42 times for 266 yards and four more scores. He has enjoyed a fairly successful stint to say the least but if rumors are to be believed, he was looking for transfer from the previous year itself. He even complained that he was racially abused by by some of his teammates which further provoked him to transfer himself from the team. According to NCAA transfer rules, one has to sit out a season prior to joining a new team but in Field’s case, the entire scenario is different as his attorney Thomas Mars has filed a petition to join Ohio in the next few weeks as he had left his former team because of racial abuse. Though the transfer spread out as a rumor, Fields took to twitter to announce the news officially that he was transferring to Ohio State. He was the number 2 player in the recruiting class in the previous season and was fairly successful in his stint with Georgia.
Before leaving his old state, he was full of praise for the his former team and he added that he was blessed to be a part of such a wonderful team and he was thankful for the opportunity that was given to him. Though he will be transferred to Ohio, he certainly has won hearts of all the Georgia state fans with his performance.
