LSU, Cincinnati Granted Permission to Contact Ohio State Transfer Joe Burrow

Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Joe Burrow announced his plans to transfer from the school on Twitter.

Possible options for Burrow include LSU, Florida and Nebraska.

Although Cincinnati has an established starting quarterback in Hayden Moore, the team is coached by former Ohio State assistant and one-time interim coach Luke Fickell.

The move leaves the Buckeyes thin on experience at quarterback.

Burrow had the best spring game of the quarterbacks, completed 15 of 22 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns.

It's obviously too early to tell where Burrow, who has two years of NCAA eligibility remaining, will continue his playing career. Jimmy, now the defensive coordinator at OH, was also a graduate assistant coach here under Frank Solich.

Burrow arrived in Ohio State as part of the 2015 recruiting class but has failed to make an impact during his tenure with the school.

It'll still be a few weeks before any decisions are made according to the announcement by Burrow. He broke his throwing hand just before the season past year, allowing Haskins to leap over him as the No. 2 quarterback.

Although the Ohio State QB job became available following the graduation of J.T. Barrett, who signed with the New Orleans Saints after going undrafted, Dwayne Haskins appears poised to take the job, which would have left Burrow in a reserve role again.

With playing time unlikely at Ohio State, Burrow's move into the open market is official. "I feel pretty good about the guys we have and the depth that we're creating at that position and the competition at that position".
