Major Program Named Transfer Possibility For Ohio State QB Joe Burrow

Joe Burrow's fate as an Ohio State football quarterback is likely going to be decided soon. What's going to happen?

The former four-star recruit is in the starting competition with the Buckeyes. He, along with Dwayne Haskins and Tate Martell, are all vying to be the man who replaces J.T. Barrett behind center.

Urban Meyer has yet to name a starter. He's yet to even really name a leader.

Both Burrow and Haskins played well in the spring game earlier this month. Both are considered excellent options.

Burrow is expected to transfer out of the program if he doesn't win the job. He admitted to considering a transfer after the 2017 season.

Where would he go if he does lose the competition? One rival Big Ten school has been named a possibility.

From CBS Sports:

During a visit to Nebraska last week, Joe Burrow's name came up more than once.

Burrow is a redshirt junior quarterback at Ohio State who reportedly could become a graduate transfer next month. The connection: Burrow's father and brothers played at Nebraska.

Further connection? Cornhuskers coach Scott Frost needs a firestarter quarterback ASAP to run his version of Chip Kelly's Blur offense.

"You think he's [Burrow] better than what we got?" Frost asked, rhetorically, after Saturday's spring game.

Nebraska has a starting quarterback competition of its own. If Burrow does end up transferring to the Huskers, though, he would almost surely win the job.

It's going to be a fascinating decision - both for Meyer and for Burrow, depending on what happens. Stay tuned.
