Justin Fields says he will sign this week at Harrison High School.

5-star Georgia QB commit Justin Fields announces he will sign on Wednesday

Justin Fields has made up his mind about his signing day.

The 5-star UGA commit announced on Twitter on Sunday evening that he will sign Wednesday on the first day of the new early period.

He will do so at a ceremony scheduled for noon at Harrison High School in Kennesaw, Ga.

Fields rates as the nation’s no. 1 dual-threat quarterback for 2018. The 6-foot-3, 221-pound prospect ranks as the nation’s No. 2 overall prospect for this cycle.

This decision will end the question as to whether Fields would sign during the early period or take his choice up to the traditional National Signing Day on Feb. 7.

Fields was not immediately able to return a message seeking comment on if he also plans to enroll early at UGA. DawgNation also reached out to a source close to the Fields camp about that topic.

It appears that no specific decision has been made about that yet.

The news comes on the heels of a very busy weekend for the SEC champions. Fields was one of a number of 5-star recruits to make official visits to UGA this weekend.

He was joined by 5-star UGA commit Zamir White, 5-star outside linebacker target Micah Parsons, and 5-star offensive linemen Jamaree Salyer and Cade Mays.

Fields has been committed to UGA since he announced his decision on Oct. 6. He is recovering from a broken finger he suffered late in the season for Harrison High that ended his prep football career.

The images found on social media from the weekend seem to indicate he is recovering well from having the pins taken out of that finger earlier this month.

There also remains the chance he could participate in the Under Armour All-America Game on Jan. 4.

When Georgia coach Kirby Smart visited Fields for his one in-home visit this week, it seemed to be a clear tell that Fields planned to sign early.

If not, he would’ve used that one in-home visit at a later date in January.
