Ohio State Buckeyes football head coach Ryan Day

Ohio State QB Justin Fields granted immediate eligibility waiver to play for Buckeyes

"I am happy for Justin and his family", Day said in a statement. Transfer quarterback Justin Fields has received a waiver from the NCAA and will be eligible to play the 2019 college football season. I am still close friends with many of my UGA teammates.

Fields, from Kennesaw, Georgia, is now a sophomore and enrolled in classes at Ohio State.

Fields' attempt to get eligible right away worked, and now the Buckeyes should be the extremely heavy favorites to win the Big Ten. "I also want to express my appreciation for the NCAA for its assistance in getting this matter resolved efficiently and with such a positive outcome for Justin".

Through 35 games this season, Maker is averaging just 4.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in roughly 12 minutes of action per night. Johnson played one season of basketball for Arizona before being taken eighth overall by the Pistons in the 2015 draft.

Ohio State's 2019 contingent increases the number of Buckeyes who have been invited to the combine to 60 over the last seven seasons, including a nation's best of 43 (tied with Alabama) players in the last four seasons. A part of me will always be a George Bulldogs fan. "It is imperative for me to have 100 percent focus in helping our new coach [Ryan Day] with his transition at The Ohio State University this fall".

This comes after Fields announced his decision to transfer to Ohio State last month saying, he appreciates Georgia's fans and football coaching staff for all they "have done to help me progress as a quarterback", but after thoughtful consideration "I've chose to transfer to Ohio State University where I will continue to pursue my undergraduate degree and play football for the Buckeyes".

During his limited freshman campaign, Fields was the subject of a racist comment from Georgia baseball player Adam Sasser. With Fields no longer a member of Georgia, quarterback Jake Fromm will be the unquestioned starter heading into 2019. He also added four rushing touchdowns.

Fields completed two passes of 50+ yards, which was the same number as Alabama backup quarterback Jalen Hurts and Texas A&M starting quarterback Kellen Mond.

Ohio State is looking for a new quarterback to replace the recently-departed Dwayne Haskins, and it could be one of the top-ranked recruits to ever play for the Buckeyes.
