Unproven Ohio State QB Justin Fields ready for hype, expectations

Justin Fields is Ohio State’s new quarterback. He says he’s ready for the expectations that come with this pressure cooker of a job. Fields is expected to succeed record-breaking Dwayne Haskins Jr. in running the offense. He comes to Columbus as the subject of plenty of hype but is unproven as a college quarterback.
