Former UGA quarterback Justin Fields now plays at Ohio State

Justin Fields watches UGA football scrimmage

Former UGA quarterback Justin Fields watched his former Bulldogs teammates participate in the football scrimmage on Saturday, DawgNation has learned.

Fields, who is now the quarterback at Ohio State, was “looking on with friends from the bleachers” — and not on the sidelines, according to Dawgs247.com.

The Heisman Trophy finalist from last year also could’ve been just hanging around the Georgia campus to visit with his sister, who still plays softball for the Bulldogs.

In any year but 2020, it would be a strange site to see the quarterback of one of UGA’s chief competitors for the College Football Playoff observing a Bulldogs practice in August. However, this year the Big Ten decided to postpone the season, although there is now chatter that the conference could resume play around Thanksgiving.

Once the Big Ten abruptly voted against football for this fall, there was media-driven conjecture about Fields transferring back to Georgia. It was certainly a hot topic among Bulldogs fans, but it was based more on wild speculation worthy of talk radio rather than actual facts.

While Fields may end up being a top 10 pick in the next NFL Draft, Georgia has tremendous depth at quarterback – led by Wake Forest transfer Jamie Newman and USC transfer JT Daniels.

DawgNation’s Mike Griffith reported on the Georgia quarterback competition after Saturday’s scrimmage.
