Justin Fields reacts to the Big Ten's decision to cancel its fall football season
At this rate, it appears Justin Fields will go down as the greatest player to suit up in the Big Ten for just one season.
The Georgia native started his college career in Athens before transferring to Ohio State and gaining immediate eligibility in Columbus last fall.
In just one season starting for the Buckeyes, Fields threw for 3,273 yards with 41 passing touchdowns and only three interceptions while rushing for another 484 yards and 10 touchdowns. The Buckeyes went undefeated in the regular season, losing to Clemson in the College Football Playoff National Semifinal.
Now, after the Big Ten’s decision to cancel the upcoming fall season, Fields days in college may be over as he (along with Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence) is concerned arguably the top prospect by many in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Of course, Fields has yet to declare his decision on the potential spring season the Big Ten says it will attempt or the 2021 college football season but given the uncertainty around not only the sports world but the entire world thanks to the coronavirus, it’s expected that most top prospects will declare for the NFL as soon as possible.
