  • Ohio State QB Burrow decides to transfer from Buckeyes

In Burrow, Orgeron may see a game-ready, talented transfer in the mold of Snead or Danny Etling, who provided some stability at the position the last two seasons for LSU after transferring in from Purdue.

Burrow has reportedly already lined up a visit to the Tigers.

That means coach Ed Orgeron and his staff could be on the lookout for a graduate transfer option, and they've been granted permission to talk to an interesting candidate. Remember that the team signed 23 players in February of the allotted 25 spots. The former four-star quarterback announced on Twitter on Tuesday that he's transferring out of the program.

Wherever he lands, he'll be eligible to play immediately under the NCAA's graduate transfer rules with two years of eligibility remaining. It'll still be a few weeks before any decisions are made according to the announcement by Burrow. He had a long list of offers from other schools that had better reputations for producing top flight college quarterbacks, including Oklahoma State, California, Auburn and West Virginia.


Sources on the Ohio State side have mentioned LSU as a very likely contender in this race, and based on Orgeron's comments just a week ago, there is certainly a line being drawn in the sand here.

At LSU, redshirt junior Justin McMillan, sophomore Myles Brennan and redshirt freshman Lowell Narcisse are all competing for starting job at LSU.

Sometimes the battle at the quarterback position is so intense that it bleeds over into the fall.
