Justin Fields is one of the prized possessions in the 2018 cycle, and he just shook things up with a decision to decommit from Penn State.
Here’s what Fields had to say:
“After many hours of prayer and discussion with my family, I have decided to decommit from Penn State University and reopen my recruitment. This is probably the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make. I’d like to thank Coach Franklin, Coach Morehead and all the PSU coaching staff for believing in me and investing time into building a relationship with me. My decision to reopen my recruitment is in no way a reflection of any deficiencies of PSU, its coaches, players or fans. I still believe that PSU is a great academic and athletic opportunity for any student athlete and it will remain one of the top schools that I would consider. I know that I will disappoint some people by my decision and for that I apologize. I ask for your prayers as I continue to seek God’s will and direction for this next step in my life. Thank you.”
Fields is the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback and the No. 6 overall recruit.
He has offers from all over the country, including from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Florida, Florida State, Tennessee and LSU. Fields is a 6’3″, 221-pound quarterback out of Kennesaw, Ga.
