LSU, Cincinnati already in pursuit of ex-Ohio State QB Joe Burrow

BC-FBC--Ohio State-Burrow

The quarterback announced he was transferring from Ohio State on Tuesday. Thanks to a redshirt season in 2015, he'll have two more years of eligibility.

Burrow redshirted as a true freshman and has appeared in just 10 games over the past 2 seasons, throwing for 287 yards with 2 touchdowns in that time.

The LSU Tigers are trying to find a replacement for Danny Etling at the quarterback position, with Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Justin McMillan competing for the starting job. He likely would have entered the 2017 season as Barrett's primary backup, but he broke his hand late in camp and underwent surgery. He threw for 1,438 yards with nine touchdowns and eight interceptions. It was reported Wednesday that Burrow will visit LSU this weekend.

In three years as the Ole Miss head coach, Orgeron could never settle on a starter and failed to put a competent quarterback on the field. The Gators are reportedly linked as a possible landing spot for Burrow, who would arrive as a graduate transfer. He said he would make a decision about where he'll play in 2018 in the coming weeks. Both LSU and Cincinnati were on the list. If he doesn't see an immediate answer at quarterback on the roster, Burrow will have an easy path to be the starter for the season opener at Miami on September 2. LSU and Cincinnati were both teams linked to Burrow nearly immediately upon his announcing an intent to transfer on Tuesday.

Brennan is not one to back away from a challenge, but he'll have to think about the long term.
