Joe Burrow is now the biggest graduate transfer on the college football market. The quarterback officially announced his intentions to leave Ohio State this afternoon. He will be a graduate transfer with immediate eligibility.
"After weeks of struggling with this decision, I have decided to leave Ohio State and explore other options. My teammates and coaches all know the love I feel for them. I will decide where I will play next year in the coming weeks," he announced on Twitter.
Burrow was Ohio State's backup quarterback in 2016. He broke his hand at the beginning of the 2017 season and Dwayne Haskins served as the Buckeyes' No. 2.
The two QBs were competing for the starting job this offseason. Burrow had said all along that he was likely going to transfer if he wasn't definitively named the team's starter.
Where is Burrow going to end up? A couple of major programs have been mentioned.

Nebraska, Florida and LSU have now been named as options for Burrow. His family has serious ties to the Huskers and both the Gators and the Tigers could be in need of a starting quarterback.
Other major programs are likely to come into play, too. Burrow is a top-level quarterback who could be one of the country's best quarterbacks in 2018.
A decision from Burrow could be coming soon. Stay tuned.
