Within 48 hours, Fields' name appeared in the NCAA's Student-Athlete Transfer Portal.

"I appreciate what coach Smart and the UGA football coaching staff have done to help me progress as a quarterback and for their patience and understanding while I thoughtfully considered my future as a student-athlete", Fields said on his Twitter account. His 50 touchdown passes this season broke Drew Brees' single-season Big Ten mark, to go with a 70-percent completion rate and almost 5,000 passing yards. Fields backed up sophomore quarterback Jake Fromm in Georgia this season and likely didn't see himself competing for the starting role in 2019. This past October, a Georgia baseball player was kicked off the team for using racial slurs geared towards Fields. Fields did not start a game for Georgia this season.

What looks to be an offseason quarterback battle is shaping up between Fields, a five-star prospect and the No. 2 overall recruit in the 2018 class, and Tate Martell, who was Haskins' backup this season, played in six games and was mainly used as a running option - much like Fields with the Bulldogs.

Ohio State's current quarterback, Dwyane Haskins, finished third in Heisman voting and re-wrote several Big Ten passing records this year. Rated as the second-best dual-threat quarterback in the 2017 class, the Las Vegas Bishop Gorman standout put up huge numbers in high school.
