Dennis Dodd, for some reason, goes concern trolling over Georgia’s latest verbal commitment.
Fields’ arrival begs the question: Why is he coming to Georgia in the first place? Two quarterbacks with starting experience and plenty of remaining eligibility await.
“It doesn’t make sense to me,” Simmons added. “Fromm doesn’t have the same NFL upside as Jacob Eason, much less Justin Fields, but if Fromm keeps winning at this clip it’s hard to imagine him getting beat out.”
Maybe — perish the thought! — Fields doesn’t believe he’ll be the guy who transfers. Besides, if he redshirts, a possibility he doesn’t exclude, and even if Fromm is the man for four seasons, he’ll be gone by the time Fields is a junior. There’s also the chance that Fromm suffers the same future as Jacob Eason’s present.
Bottom line, you can’t predict the future. But this should make for a nice negative recruiting thing for other coaches to email Fields between now and signing day.
