Report: Justin Fields spotted at SEC team's scrimmage on Saturday
Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields was reportedly back in his home state over the weekend, and took the opportunity to watch a scrimmage in SEC country.
Saturday, 247Sports reported that Fields was spotted in the bleachers with friends at Georgia’s team scrimmage on Saturday. The future first-round NFL draft pick was a member of the Bulldogs before transferring to Ohio State before spring 2019.
Fields was the nation’s No. 2 overall prospect during the 2018 recruiting class and signed with Georgia, planning to spend his career close to his hometown of Kennesaw. After one season in Athens, however, Fields opted to transfer to Ohio State to continue his college career.
Last season, Fields won the starting job at Ohio State and led the Buckeyes to a 13-1 record and a B1G title while throwing for 3,273 yards and 41 touchdowns while completing over 67 percent of his passes. He also rushed for 484 yards and 10 additional touchdowns, and was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy.
Not long after the B1G postponed the fall football season, Fields launched a petition urging the conference presidents and commissioner Kevin Warren to reconsider the decision and reinstate the fall schedule. That petition has received more than 300,000 signatures.
Still, the B1G has said it will not revisit playing this fall.
Fields has not opted out of a late-fall or early-spring football season and has not yet declared for the NFL Draft. He’s considered to be a top 5 selection by nearly every NFL Draft analyst.
