ATHENS, Ga. (BVM) – Georgia softball star Jaiden Fields, sister of Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields, is among the WWE’s third class of its “Next In Line” program. The name, image and likeness agreement “serves to recruit and develop potential superstars and further enhances WWE’s talent development process.”

Jaiden is one of 15 college athletes who will join the WWE’s award-winning NIL program which “provides a clear pathway from collegiate athletics to WWE.” Since its inception in December 2021, “Next In Line” has signed 46 college athletes, including Gable Stevenson, the NCAA champion wrestler (Minnesota) and Olympic gold medalist who was the program’s first signee.

The newest 15-member class announced on Thursday also includes four football players: Arkansas defensive lineman Landon Jackson, Kentucky running back Dee Beckwith, Penn State offensive lineman Nick Dawkins and Rutgers defensive lineman Isaiah Iton (a recent Ole Miss transfer).

Jaiden, a redshirt senior at Georgia, is coming off of a 2022 season where she started 51 games for the Bulldogs and batted .331 with 50 total hits. She was one of six Bulldogs with 10-plus home runs and slugged .583 on the season with a .418 on-base percentage.

Prior to arriving in Athens, Jaiden was a three-time all-state performer at Harrison High School (GA) where she hoisted a state championship as a senior and was named the 2018 6A Player of the Year.

Harrison is also where Jaiden’s older brother, Justin, became a five-star recruit. After racking up 69 total touchdowns in two years as the Hoyas’ starter, Justin also began his collegiate career at Georgia before transferring to Ohio State after his true freshman year.

Justin starred with the Buckeyes and led Ohio State to a Big Ten Championship in his first season with the team. The Chicago Bears selected him with the 11th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft after repeating as the Big Ten’s Offensive Player of the Year. Justin just wrapped up his second year in the NFL where he became the third quarterback in NFL history to rush for 1,000 yards in a season, joining Michael Vick and Lamar Jackson.

As dynamic as Justin has shown to be, his younger sister might be the best athlete of the bunch and, with her redshirt senior season with the Bulldogs just months away, Jaiden has a future in professional wrestling to look forward to if she wants it.
