The Ohio State Buckeyes received good news on Friday afternoon. The NCAA has ruled that Justin Fields can play right away.
Fields transferred from the Georgia Bulldogs to the Buckeyes in the off-season. He will replace Dwayne Haskins, who will play in the NFL in 2019.
The odds of Fields starting over the next several seasons at Georgia were slim. Jake Fromm — who guided the team to a National Championship during his freshman year — is the team’s starter.
Fromm is entering his junior campaign in 2019.
As a freshman, Fields appeared in 12 games with the Bulldogs. He went 27 of 39 for 328 yards. He also threw four touchdowns.
Fields also had 42 carries for 266 yards and an additional four touchdowns. He also had one reception for -10 yards.
Haskins was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2018. He went 373 of 533 for 4,831 yards in 14 games as a first-year starter. He also had 50 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
