Kennesaw, Georgia junior quarterback Justin Fields has led his Harrison High team to a 7-1 record thus far this season. His performance has led to Justin receiving offers from programs in all of the power 5 conferences.
The offer count is now up to 29 for the 4 star recruit. Georgia Tech is one of the schools that has offered Justin. Justin received the offer from Coach Ron West. “He is very well known in this area and I like him a lot.” The two have talked about the school, the academics, and how he would fit into the Tech offense. “We’ve also talked about how close Tech is to home and I like that.”
Fields has not had a chance to visit Tech. Justin had originally planned a visit but a family issue forced him to postpone the trip. “I hope to set one up with Coach West in the very near future. Tech is a
place I want to get to know much better."
Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Northwestern, and Penn State are schools that Justin has already visited. Justin had also wanted to visit Tech for the Clemson game but stayed home to work on a class project. “I
take pride in my academic work. I have a 3.958 GPA"
Fields considers himself to be a dual threat quarterback. "I have a good arm but I’m also a good running quarterback. Justin feels that he would be a good fit for the Tech spread option offense. His size and speed are big factors in the attention he’s getting from schools around the country.
As his recruitment moves forward, Tech will be one of the schools that Fields will be considering. "They are a great academic school that plays football at the highest level. That is a great combination that any football player would love to have.” Justin feels that he would fit in well both academically and on the football field.
Does Justin have a favorite at this time? "I have so many great choices at this time. I’m at the point of just taking it in right now and seeing how I feel when I talk or visit each school. It's too early to start naming a top list of schools.” Virginia Tech is the one school that Justin feels is recruiting him the hardest at this time.
Justin has two basic factors that he’ll look at in choosing a school. He’ll be looking how he fits in with the school and the football program and he’ll be looking to see if the school has a resemblance to home. Justin wants to feel like he’s at home away from home.
A date for making his college decision has not been set. "I’ll probably decide sometime before the end of my season next year.”
