It appears that quarterback Justin Fields is moving on from the University of Georgia.

USA Today College Football columnist Dan Wolken reported that the freshman quarterback has informed the Bulldogs that he intends to transfer. The school has not commented on the report. There has been much speculation that Fields has been unhappy with his role, getting limited playing time behind starting quarterback Jake Fromm.

With Fromm likely to be the starter again in his junior year in 2019, Wolken told the Morning Show with John Fricke and Jon Chuckery that Fields will look for a starting role elsewhere.

"The way it works now in the NCAA transfer system is, if you have an interest in transferring, you have to put your request into the school and the school has 48 hours to enter it into the transfer portal."

Once the school enters Fields information into the portal, he would essentially become a free agent. At that point, any school would be allowed to contact and recruit him.

While a family member told DawgNation that no decision has been made regarding the report that Fields is transferring, Wolken knows the ball is already rolling.

"Where we are in the process--I mean, this is not speculation, this is fact--Justin Fields and his camp notified Georgia that they have an intent to transfer. Georgia has, I believe, until the end of the day today to put that into the NCAA system. And that's what's going to happen unless the kid changes his mind."

So, which school will land the former No. 2 high school recruit?

Penn State, where Fields originally committed, and Florida State have both been mentioned as possible opportunities.
