Jake Fromm reacts to the Justin Fields transfer reports
Sophomore QB Jake Fromm led Georgia to an 11-win season, including victories over rivals Auburn, Florida and Tennessee, as well as an SEC East title, but heading into the Sugar Bowl, he’s arguably the less talked-about Bulldogs quarterback.
The bigger Georgia storyline in the national media is the transfer of QB Justin Fields. Fromm commented on his freshman teammate’s decision when meeting with reporters Thursday in New Orleans.
“It hasn’t changed anything for me,” Fromm told Mike Griffith of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “He’s going to do what’s best for him. But as far as me and this football team, it doesn’t change anything.”
The sophomore quarterback says he and his UGA teammates are focused on the task at hand, facing Texas on Jan. 1 and won’t be distracted by a trip to The Big Easy.
“The guy are excited to be here, getting pumped up, getting dialed in, and ready to play this football game,” Fromm said. “We’re not too worried about (sightseeing), we’re focused on the game and trying to win.”
