Class of 2018 No. 1 Recruit Justin Fields Commits to Georgia

Fields had made multiple visits to Georgia in the last few months, and also took an official visit to LSU. Fields's younger sister, Jaiden, is committed to play softball at Georgia as part of the class of 2019. Fields is the eighth commitment from a Georgia high school player. Coach Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs' staff, however, say they expect a strong finish to the class. Those efforts paid off for the in-state quarterback as he was named to the Under Armour All-America Game roster on September 6. The most notable so far has been true freshman quarterback Jake Fromm, who took over for injured Jacob Eason.

Fields becomes the 15th overall commitment for the Bulldogs.

Down the road, Fields can begin putting together the finishing touches on a class that could once again rank in the top 3-4 nationally.

This marks the third-straight year in which Georgia has received a commitment from one of the nation's top quarterbacks.

Georgia junior linebacker Natrez Patrick could be facing a four-game suspension following his second arrest on marijuana charges in three years. Henry, ESPN 300 offensive linemen Jamaree Salyer and Trey Hill, defensive back Tyreke Johnson, running back James Cook and plenty more. Smart has won his biggest recruiting battle for this cycle. He also visited Auburn, Alabama and LSU for Saturday home games this season.

We talk so much about Ohio State's future quarterback battle, that it's possible many Buckeye fans just assume that their team has accumulated the best collection of quarterback talent in the country.
