Fields may be getting closer to transferring to Ohio State.

Multiple reports confirm that No. 5 Georgia's back-up quarterback and former 5-star recruit Justin Fields will transfer to Ohio State.

Fields and Haskins both train with Atlanta-based quarterbacks coach Quincy Avery, who has been an outspoken supporter of new Buckeyes coach Ryan Day for his ability to train and develop players at that crucial position.

The NFL Draft begins on April 25 in Nashville, Tennessee. Fields announced the transfer after he was expected to visit the Ohio State campus earlier Friday.

China's new lunar rover leaves first 'footprint' on moon's far side
The unmanned lunar missions are part of China's ambitions to join the United States and Russian Federation as a major space power. At 10:26 Beijing time (02:26 GMT), the un-crewed Chang'e-4 probe touched down in the South Pole-Aitken Basin, state media said.

Fields was the target of a racial slur from a Georgia baseball player during a football game in September. He threw for 328 yards, ran for 266 and had eight combined touchdowns.

Haskins' day was filled with dizzying statistics, including his six touchdown passes almost matching the seven total MI had yielded all season. The true freshman was unable to claim the starting job from incumbent Jake Fromm, seeing action in every game this past year outside of the Sugar Bowl. He is expecting to be eligible right away after submitting a waiver request to the one-year transfer ineligibility rule.

Fields' decision to come to Ohio State could have very well been because of Haskins.

It likely means the end of Haskins' time with the Buckeyes because the Heisman finalist quarterback already said Fields was waiting on him before deciding where he'd end up.
