Justin Fields served as the backup to Jake Fromm this season.
The freshman quarterback from Kennesaw was the No. 2 player in the country coming out of high school in the 2018 class. Fields is reportedly exploring transfer options.
In his first year in Athens, Fields was used sparingly. He did not start this season, but he played in 12 of the 13 games. The one game he missed was the annual grudge match against Florida in Jacksonville, Fla.
He had voiced his frustration with his playing time.
Fields completed 27 of his 39 pass attempts for 328 yards and four touchdowns. He rushed for 266 rushing yards on the season and four touchdowns.
In the SEC Championship, Fields executed the ill-fated fake punt on fourth-and-11 in the loss to Alabama.
