Justin Fields is one of the more coveted recruits on the market but, as of earlier this week, the five-star quarterback prospect was firmly committed to Penn State. On Tuesday, though, Fields walked that back by announcing his decommitment on Twitter.
Since then, there has been plenty of speculation as to where Fields could end up before all is said and done but two programs could become leaders as a result of personal fit for Fields.
Mike Farrell of Rivals brings word from the rising senior quarterback that Florida State and Penn State could zoom to the top of the list. It is no surprise that Penn State would be in the mix given the prior affiliation of a commitment but, with the Seminoles, it would be an interesting fit from a depth chart standpoint. Fields classifies as a dual-threat quarterback (arguably the top player in this mold in the country) but Florida State does have Deondre Francois entering just his sophomore year at the position.
Programs like Georgia, which would be the in-state option for Fields, are definitely interesting as well but fit and comfort level are incredibly important. Keep an eye on both the Seminoles and Nittany Lions moving forward.
