Fans, media react to news Justin Fields is headed to Ohio State
Ohio State received some big news on Friday when it was reported that former 5-star and Georgia quarterback Justin Fields was headed to Columbus.
It’s a huge victory for new head coach Ryan Day after just a few days in his new role. And now, the Buckeyes have their quarterback of the future.
Following the report, which came from Letterman Row, there was plenty of reaction from fans and the media on Twitter. Ohio State fans were excited while the Georgia faithful were disappointed.
Here are some of the social media reactions from Friday’s report.
I'm so here for Justin Fields vs. Tate Martell this offseason.

I’ve never seen a HS quarterback own the position like Justin Fields did in the summer of 2017 — how that translates into college is up in the air, but he’s got an absolutely incredibly high ceiling.

Justin Fields will transfer to Ohio State, according to a source close to the #UGA QB.
He planned on competing for the job with Jake Fromm, and wasn’t able to win it. Ohio State then became “the best situation for him.”

Welp, that's it. Another 2 years of Jake Fromm winning nothing, while Justin Fields goes to another program and wins the Heisman and National Championship.

I wouldn't surprised if the whole damn transfer system breaks down with Justin Fields as the catalyst. You watch, he will get a waiver and the system as we know it will forever be changed.
