The Ocean State Bouquets officially have a new starting quarterback.
In his weekly press conference Monday, Buckeyes head coach Ryan Day announced that Justin Fields would command the offense this season.
The pressure is always overwhelming for anyone who starts at quarterback for Ohio State. But Fields, who transferred from Georgia last winter, is expected to pick up the spot where he suspended the record for Heisman Trophy and was selected by first-round NFL draft pick Dwayne Haskins, Jr..
Fields, a 20-year-old sophomore, has never started a college game. He saw only limited playing time during his freshman year, most notably on the debut behind Jake Fromm.
