Justin Fields is making some noise this offseason and it has nothing to do with football.
The Chicago Bears quarterback graduated from Ohio State on Sunday with a degree in consumer and family financial services. He left school after his junior season to enter the NFL Draft, but OSU said he continued his coursework through the athletic department’s degree-completion program.
He showed up to the Buckeye Stadium he called home field for two seasons to receive his degree.

Social media couldn’t be more proud of him:
After graduating high school, Fields enrolled at the University of Georgia and played for the Georgia Bulldogs during the 2018 season. However, he transferred to Ohio State University in 2019 to have a more prominent role as a starting quarterback.
The 24-year-old led the Buckeyes to the Big Ten Championship in 2019 and 2020 and guided them to the College Football Playoff both years. He earned several accolades, including being named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year in 2019 and 2020.
He left Ohio State for the NFL after his junior season. The Bears rewarded the decision by selecting him with the No. 11 pick in the 2021 draft.
He would take over the starting job in his rookie year and started 15 games in his second season, completing 60.4% of his passes for 2,242 yards with 17 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
