Justin Fields might not have played for Urban Meyer at Ohio State … but the ex-Buckeyes star says he doesn’t doubt the coach will have success in Jacksonville.
The quarterback just touched down in L.A. at LAX this week … and when we asked him about the Jags’ newest headman — the 21-year-old had nothing but praise for the coach.
“Coach [Ryan] Day recruited me [to Ohio State] but I mean I’ve heard great things about coach Meyer and the way he coaches,” Field says.
“So, I wouldn’t be surprised if he had great success down in Jacksonville.”
Of course, there is a chance Fields could end up playing for Urban next season … Justin just declared for the draft and Meyer has the top overall pick.
Most believe Urban will take Clemson star, Trevor Lawrence, over Fields … but when we asked Justin if he believed he was the better prospect, he sure seemed to think so.
“I’m not going to put out there what I think makes me better because I don’t want to cause any controversy,” Fields says. “But, of course, you have self-confidence that you’re the best player in the nation.”
As for Fields’ draft-day plans in the pandemic … Justin tells us the party will have to be lowkey this year — even if Meyer ends up drafting him #1 overall.
