Justin Fields has earned many accolades over his short time with the Bears. He’s earned Player of the Week awards and broken numerous NFL records. Now he’s added “college graduate” to the list.
Fields officially finished up at Ohio State on Sunday and graduated with a degree in consumer and family financial services. Fields left OSU after his junior year to go pro, but according to the university he continued his coursework through the Department of Athletics’ degree completion program.
Fields, 24, joined Ohio State in 2019 after a single season as a backup at Georgia. He started two seasons as Ohio State’s quarterback and led the Buckeyes to the CFP semifinals as a sophomore and the national championship game as a junior in 2020. He left Ohio State for the NFL after his junior season.
The Chicago Bears, of course, are happy for his accomplishments and ready to start the new season.
