Report: Justin Fields could show up in NCAA’s transfer database later today
UGA quarterback Justin Fields could show up in the NCAA’s transfer’s database by the end of business on Tuesday, according to USA TODAY’s Dan Wolken.
Fields made his request to transfer on Friday, an unnamed source told USA Today. “That means, unless he (Fields) decides to pull his request, he will be in the NCAA transfer database by the end of Tuesday and officially become a free agent. At that point, any school will be able to see his name in the database and be allowed to recruit him.”
One important fact about that: Just because a player’s name shows up in the NCAA transfer’s database, it doesn’t mean that the player will definitely transfer. Players can change their minds and decide to remain at the current school.
DawgNation’s Mike Griffith reported earlier today that Fields discussed his intention to explore a transfer with UGA’s coaches on Monday.
Under the new NCAA transfer rules, once a student informs his or her school of a desire to transfer, that requires that school to enter the student’s name into the NCAA’s transfer database within two days.
Neither UGA or Fields has yet to officially comment on the transfer speculation.
