QB Joe Burrow decides to transfer from Ohio State

The redshirt junior, who battled with Dwayne Haskins to be J.T. Barrett's backup last season then again for the open starting job this spring, announced his intention to transfer Tuesday in a Twitter post.

You only had to watch a few clips of Dwayne Haskins Jr.in garbage time last season, or maybe you caught him filling in for an injured J.T. Barrett against MI, and it was clear.

Burrow graduated Sunday with a degree in family resource management.

"I came here to play, I didn't come here to sit on the bench for four years", Burrow said after completing 15 of 22 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns.

All three quarterbacks are worthy of starting for Ohio State this season. While with the Buckeyes, Burrow accumulated 287 yards and 2 touchdowns.

"He's kind of an Alex Smith type". Haskins was a four-star recruit coming out of high school in Maryland and was considered one of the top pro-style quarterbacks in his class.

Myles Brennan, Justin McMillan and Lowell Narcisse, all inexperienced options, competed for LSU during spring ball.

"I came here to play", Burrow said after the spring game. With Burrow officially on the market, could that change? Florida may have even more uncertainty behind center than LSU at the moment, and new Gators coach Dan Mullen is a protégé of current Ohio State coach Urban Meyer.

Burrow, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound former Ohio Mr. Football, grew up in Athens, where his father, Jimmy, is the longtime defensive coordinator for coach Frank Solich at Ohio University. Other interested suitors will certainly trickle out in the coming days as well.

It's also worth noting that Burrow transferring to Nebraska would mean a showdown with Ohio State on November 3, whether that's something Burrow desires or hopes to avoid.
