Quarterback Joe Burrow To Transfer From Ohio State


Burrow spent three years at Ohio State, redshirting in 2015 and working as the No. 2 quarterback in 2016.

Reached for comment on Tuesday, Burrow's father Jimmy Burrow said the family would not be releasing any further statements.

Haskins entered the spring as a heavy favorite to earn the starting job, but Burrow was expected to challenge him for the gig. Over the last two seasons he has appeared in 11 games and thrown for 287 yards and two touchdowns while completing 29-of-39 attempts. However, Burrow fell to No. 3 behind redshirt freshman Haskins in 2017. Quarterbacks are prone to transferring more than any other position. Burrow had said all along that he was likely going to transfer if he wasn't definitively named the team's starter.

Shortly after the spring game, Frost told CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd, "We think, if we can get by with what we have, it's cleaner than muddying up the situation".

"I came here to play". He made a good case to earn that role, too, especially with his effort - 15-for-22 for 238 yards - in OSU's spring game. "I want to play somewhere". All of that coming in backup work to Barrett.

He never go the opportunity Haskins got to show his wares at a meaningful juncture of a big game, and Meyer made mention of Haskins performance against MI previous year being a factor in the competition coming into spring. He's more of a pocket passer than the Ohio State quarterbacks we've become accustomed to in recent years, but according to Kevin Noon of BuckeyeGrove.com, Ohio State's Rivals.com affiliate, he can hurt you with his legs, too.

Another graduate transfer quarterback hit the market Tuesday. They're all competing for the starting job.
