4. QB Justin Fields, Ohio State
Could he really throw? Could he really handle being the No. 1 guy? Could he really play like the next superstar Ohio State quarterback?
It only took less than ten minutes against Florida Atlantic, and then it was all over. Justin Fields showed he really is ready to play like the superstar prospect who was supposed to rock Georgia’s world last season.
Less than two minutes in, he took off for a 51-yard scoring dash.
Two minutes later, he connected on a perfect pass for a touchdown. Two minutes after that, he hit Binjimen Victor for a 32-yard score. Three minutes after that, he connected with Chris Olave for a touchdown.
28-0, and it was over. So what if Ohio State wasn’t all that great the rest of the way? Fields had already delivered the knockout punch.
He completed 18-of-25 passes for 234 yards and four scores, and ran 12 times for 61 yards and a touchdown. With the weapons he has around him, the offensive line to pave the way, and the amazing offense to operate, this isn’t going to stop.
