Four-Star Dual-Threat Quarterback Justin Fields Commits To Penn State

Class of 2018 four-star dual-threat quarterback Justin Fields out of Kennesaw, Georgia committed to Penn State on Thursday ahead of the Nittany Lions Big Ten Championship Game against Wisconsin on Saturday.

Fields had offers from 31 other schools including Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Northwestern, but he chose Happy Valley after receiving an offer in July during one of Penn State’s camps and unofficially visiting twice this season.

According to 247 Sports, the 6’2 210 lbs quarterback is the eighth-best dual-threat option in the nation from the Class of 2018. With Penn State’s move to an up-tempo offense this season, Fields’ versatility could play a role in the future for the Nittany Lions.

Fields will join three other quarterbacks — Trace McSorley, Tommy Stevens, and Jake Zembiec — already on the roster and four-star recruit out of Cincinnati Sean Clifford, who has committed to Penn State from the Class of 2017.

With Fields’ commitment, Penn State’s Class of 2018 now has six verbals and is ranked No. 1 in the nation during these early stages.

Here’s some of his highlights from Hudl.
