Georgia quarterback Justin Fields transferring to Ohio State

Justin Fields' time with the University of Georgia appears to be coming to an end as DawgNation's Mike Griffith and Letterman Row's reporter Jeremy Birmingham are reporting that he will be transferring to Ohio State.

Buckeyes starting quarterback Dwayne Haskins is expected to enter the NFL Draft, although he has not officially made an announcement about his future.

It has been documented that in September, during a game against Tennessee, a Georgia baseball player allegedly shouted racial slurs at Fields. The transfer would not be official until he attends spring semester classes, which begin Monday.

Fields did not play in Tuesday night's Allstate Sugar Bowl where Georgia lost to Texas, 28-21.

While Izzo might seem relatively unhappy, he's actually thrilled his squad went on the road to earn a victory in the conference.

In the last two games of the season, Haskins completed 59 of his 78 passes for 750 yards, eight touchdowns and one interception.

The Buckeyes landed Georgia backup quarterback Justin Fields, a highly touted recruit who spent the season backing up Bulldogs' starter Jake Fromm. If Fields is eligible, he would compete with Tate Martell for the starting job next season.

As Clemson and Alabama prepare to duke it out over another national championship, the Ohio State football program send a strong message to the college world: Don't forget about us. Georgia signed JUCO quarterback Stetson Bennett, who was a member of the 2017 Georgia team, and Dwan Mathis, a 4-star quarterback in the 2019 signing class, and both will enroll in January.

Georgia opens the 2019 season against Vanderbilt on August 31.
