QB Joe Burrow leaving Ohio State, becomes top grad transfer option

Ohio State quarterback Joe Burrow announced Tuesday he's planning to transfer from the Buckeyes football program "in the coming weeks". Burrow passed for 238 yards and two touchdowns in the spring game on April 14, and his last pass at Ohio Stadium was a Hail Mary for a touchdown on an untimed down.

"After weeks of struggling with this decision, I have chose to leave Ohio State and explore other options", Burrow wrote Tuesday.

Haskins was going to be the Buckeyes' starter in 2018.

A key domino fell in Ohio State's quarterback race Tuesday. Mostly playing in mop-up duty, Burrow completed 22-of-28 pases for 226 yards and two touchdowns that season. "I will decide where I will play next year in the coming weeks", Burrow wrote.

Chelsea vs Liverpool: What Hazard said about Giroud's performance
Giroud delivered the Blues with the unique goal of this game and Chelsea can still take the top 4 spot away from Tottenham Hotspur . "He missed a couple but in the end he scored and we won the game so it's okay".

With Barrett now in the NFL, Burrow, Haskins and Martell, who redshirted in 2017, all received significant reps throughout the spring, but Haskins, who impressed when Barrett was injured in 2017, was perceived as the front-runner. Burrow, who'd have instant eligibility elsewhere, would be highly coveted if he leaves Columbus. Burrow's decision regarding LSU could ultimately come down to his fit with Orgeron and offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger.

On Monday, Dan Mullen tried to quiet down the rumors by saying the Gators were not interested in adding a grad transfer quarterback, "right now". As noted by SEC Country's Sam Spiegelman, LSU is a school that very well could play a role in Burrow's future.

Joe Burrow became a much talked-about figure in Lincoln when Scott Frost was hired as the head coach here, given the natural connection between Frost and Solich and the Burrows and also NU's change in offensive system.

An Ohio State spokesman said coach Urban Meyer had no immediate comment. Jimmy, the defensive coordinator at OH, was also a graduate assistant coach at NU under Frank Solich.
