Joe Burrow's seven best transfer options after leaving Ohio State

"After weeks of struggling with this decision, I have chose to leave Ohio State and explore other options", Burrow wrote. LSU and Cincinnati were both teams linked to Burrow nearly immediately upon his announcing an intent to transfer on Tuesday. He has two years of eligibility remaining.

Still, those meager statistics are similar to the combined statistics of the three current candidates for the Red Raider starting job.

In 2015, Burrow was the No. 8 dual-threat quarterback in the nation and the No. 280 overall prospect nationally.

The move leaves the Buckeyes thin on experience at quarterback.

A decision came down Tuesday when Burrow declared via social media that he's moving on despite a strong spring, including his 15-of-22, 238-yard performance in the spring game.

Behind Haskins are two scholarship quarterback who have zero collegiate snaps between them.

Now, it's time to talk about the third quarterback on the team in Tate Martell.

Trask is a redshirt sophomore, and Jones is a true freshman.

Burrow grew up in Athens in southeastern Ohio, where his father, Jimmy, is the longtime defensive coordinator for coach Frank Solich at Ohio University. He competed with Dwayne Haskins this spring for the starting role. "And I want to play somewhere".

McMillan was a dark-horse in the early stages of this race, but teammates praised his play throughout spring practice and after the spring game Orgeron said McMillan was playing with more confidence than the other two.

I think the ideal fit for Burrow, however, is with Dan Mullen and the Florida Gators.
