Ultimately, Fields chose to take his talents to Ohio State.

Quarterback Justin Fields is finalizing a transfer from Georgia to Ohio State according to Pat Forde of Yahoo Sports.

Fields chose to transfer from Georgia after he was unable to beat out starter Jake Fromm.

The quarterback announced Monday he intends to apply for entry into the 2019 NFL Draft.

It should be a blast seeing how well Fields can do under Ryan Day at OSU. He appeared in 12 of the Bulldogs 14 games this season, with Florida and Texas being the only two games were he did not play. Fields completed 27 of 39 passes for 328 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions and rushed 42 times for 266 yards and four more scores.

Haskins leapt onto the scene as a surprise star, replacing graduate J.T. Barrett as Ohio State's starter in 2018 and lighting up the Big Ten in an unusually volatile season for the Buckeyes.

Oklahoma has hired Ohio State co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Alex Grinch as defensive coordinator. The true freshman was unable to claim the starting job from incumbent Jake Fromm, seeing action in every game this past year outside of the Sugar Bowl.

The former five-star recruit is seeking a waiver to play immediately in 2019.

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.
