Joel Klatt breaks down why he expects Justin Fields to be 'even better' at Ohio State this year
Justin Fields has been considered a contender for the Heisman Trophy during the 2020 season since last season came to an end. After scoring 51 touchdowns with just three interceptions and leading Ohio State to a 13-1 record, he emerged as clearly one of the best players in the sport.
But as good as Fields was in 2019, FOX college football analyst Joel Klatt believes the Buckeyes gunslinger can be even better this fall.
Klatt broke down some of Fields’ film from the 2019 season, particularly from the regular season finale against Michigan. He highlighted the elite skill-set the quarterback brings to the field and discussed why he believes Fields could be even more effective under center than he was as a first-year starter.
Below is the clip from FOX:

That has to be fairly concerning for B1G defenses, which Fields picked apart with absolutely no trouble a year ago.
Not only did Fields throw for over 3,000 yards and 41 touchdowns, he rushed for nearly 500 more and reached the end zone 10 times on the ground, resulting in being named a first-team All-B1G selection and being named a finalist in the Heisman Trophy race.
This year, the first glimpse of Fields will be when Ohio State opens the season against Nebraska on Oct. 24.
