Justin Fields is one of the best quarterbacks in college football and a great guy off the field. In this article we look at what he’s done so far in his career and go over what to expect from him in the future.
High School and QB1
He also appeared in Season 2 of QB1: Beyond the Lights on Netflix. The show documented Fields’ final season in high school. Wake Forest’s Sam Hartman and Re-al Mitchell, who recently transferred from Iowa State to Temple, were also on the show. Think of QB1: Beyond the Lights as the high school version of Hard Knocks but focusing on individual talents. I recommend watching the show if you want to learn more about Justin Fields.
Transfer from Georgia
A big storyline before last season was Fields’ decision to transfer from Georgia. A big question mark was whether he would be granted immediate eligibility. Fields chose Ohio State and he didn’t have to sit out a year.
Georgia had him as one of their top recruits along with Trevor Lawrence and he decided to stay in his hometown. Fields
Justin Fields at Ohio State
Fields took over at quarterback and he was able to fit like a glove in the Ohio State offense. The signal-caller led Ohio State to a Big Ten championship and a College Football Playoff appearance. He was also a Heisman Trophy finalist and he is a +400 favorite to win the award next season at BetOnline.
ESPN analyst Laura Rutledge appeared on Get Up! and picked Fields to win the Heisman Trophy next season.
“I would go ahead and say that Justin Fields wins the Heisman,” Rutledge said. “I think that is going to do more with the type of competition that Ohio State is going to have.”
Justin Fields completed 238 of 354 passes for 3,273 yards and 41 touchdowns with three interceptions in 14 games. Fields completed 67.2 percent of his passes and he can be even better next season because he will be more comfortable and familiar with the team.
While Fields is not a full-on dual-threat quarterback, he still ran for 484 yards and 10 touchdowns on 137 carries, averaging 3.5 yards per carry. Fields’ low interception total proves that he is a great decision-maker and that bodes well for his future.
Look for Fields to improve significantly with more experience under
