Former 4-Star QB Prospect Joe Burrow to Transfer from Ohio State

With the transfer announcement of Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow, redshirt sophomore Dwayne Haskins should now be considered the frontrunner to start this year. LSU signed 23 of the possible 25 players for its Class of 2018, with its 24th scholarship going to former Stanford defensive back Terrence Alexander.

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. This isn't to say Burrow would be the favorite if he arrived - he only attempted 11 passes last season - but instead illustrates how he could jump right into the mix.

Speaking of OH, in-state options like OH and Cincinnati could also be in the mix.

Reached Tuesday by the Journal Star, Jimmy Burrow declined comment and said the family will not be talking publicly until Joe makes a decision. At the same time however, no decision on the starting gig will be made any time soon. The dual-threat QB has chose to leave the program.

Haskins tweeted in support of Burrow on Tuesday, writing, "Good luck to you brotha!"

Skipper Rohit, who struggled to get going initially, has found some sort of form and now will have to lead from the front. Having scored 103 runs in the first 11 overs, Mumbai added only 78 in the final nine overs for a disappointing finish.

Burrow spent 2016, his redshirt freshman year, as the backup to the now-departed J.T. Barrett, playing in five games in mop-up duty and completing 22 of 28 passes for 226 yards and two touchdowns.

What schools are interested in Burrow's services?

However, he can play immediately if he leaves for a division one-AA team aka FCS schools.

It's not exactly the big time, but OU is still in the FBS Division and if Burrow plays well enough, the National Football League scouts and talent evaluators will find him.

On the surface, the Tigers would seem to have the third-best odds of landing Burrow.
