Has Georgia’s and Dawg Nation prayers been answered?
Friday morning, Bulldog Nation and the college football world received a surprise. The number one recruit in the ESPN 300, QB Justin Fields released his commitment for the next four years. Fields has intrigued the eyes and thoughts of many college coaches because everyone wants this QB. Justin had over 40 offers from schools around the country but only one could be chosen.
Fields had previously brought his recruiting process down to four schools: LSU, Florida State, Auburn, and Georgia.
The college football world and Bulldog Nation just received the best recruit in high school football. Many wonder could this be the answer to the National Championship questions buzzed around Georgia. The elusiveness, skill, and Football IQ of Fields causes him to be the best QB in the Nation but also a game changer at the next level.
The 6’3 210 pound QB looks nothing short of amazing from his arm and accuracy, to his vision, to his Lamar Jackson type leaps over players.
So far in his career, Fields has 375 pass attempts with 244 completions for 3,744 passing yards and 35 touchdowns. Fields averages 220 yards per game and has only seven total interceptions. The sounds of these stats sounds like a top tier QB who accepts nothing but greatness out of himself. Fields could bring versatility and another threat to the Georgia offense with his arms and feet. In the past few years, it seems as though the mobile and elusive QB play style gets you Heisman’s and National Championships.
When you can have dynamic Running Backs in the back field, on top of dynamic Wide Receivers and a QB who can execute in and out of the pocket, you can beat almost anybody.
Adding Justin Fields to this vicious scoring offense could add more worry and game planning in opponents heads come game-day. Many QB’s like Jalen Hurts, Marcus Mariota, Cam Newton, Lamar Jackson, etc are prime examples of what elusive and mobile QB play can achieve late in the season. Not to say that you can’t win a championship with a premier pocket passer but the game is changing. With a mobile and elusive QB, you can have a lot of success with a power run game and a great receiving pass game.
Only time will tell what this 6’3 210 pound Senior Quarterback can provide for the Dawgs once he touches campus. This commit is just another major addition to the 2018 recruiting class for the Georgia Bulldogs. They have the #1 running back in the nation in Zamir White, Four-star defensive end Caleb Tannor from Lithonia Ga, and Four-Star Cornerback Chris Smith from Atlanta, with a host of other Four-Star recruits. It looks as though this is a game changing commit for the dawgs and can only attract more four or five stars to the depth of the Bulldogs roster.
