SKYFOX 5 flew over Harrison High's football field as Fields, who was surrounded by his teammates, put on a Georgia jersey and hat.
Fields' final list of potential schools included Auburn, LSU, FSU, and Georgia.
Justin Fields won't be the only Bulldog in his family. His sister Jaiden has already committed to play softball at the University of Georgia.
"You want your kids together if possible, " said father Pablo Fields ahead of the Friday announcement. "But, you want the best for them. We do more and more research it keeps coming back to the same place...something kept pointing back to this school and it's the best fit. I think he'll be content in his decision."
Fields and Cartersville quarterback Trevor Lawrence are the top two prospects at the position in the country. Lawrence made his decision to play for Clemson last December.
Fields has led the Hoyas to a 3-2 record so far this season--the two losses coming to top-ranked Rome and North Cobb (4-1).
