Poor Georgia Bulldogs fans. All they wanted to do is watch No. 1 overall recruit Justin Fields talk about how excited he is to go to school there. Maybe, even, talk about enrolling early.
Alas, Georgia fans were instead treated to the touted prospect talking about the chances of him spurning the Bulldogs, and instead pursuing a career in Major League Baseball.
Prior to the Under Armour All-America Game, Fields had a chance to talk about his health and what is next for him.
“It felt good to be out there competing in something,” Fields said. “I only started throwing the ball again last week so to be able to get a few good throws in was fun.”
Fields estimates that he’s “only at about 80 percent” right now, but said that hasn’t halted his fun this week.
“I’ve been having a good time training and hanging out with the guys,” Fields said. “I am working to get back to 100 percent.”
“Even though I’m not playing in the game, this is something that I’ll never experience again,” Fields said. “I’m just thinking about right now. The rest will take care of itself.”
For what it is worth, he has been consistent in saying he won’t know about a possible early enrollment for another week or so.
