A top college football quarterback has hit the graduate transfer market. Former Ohio State quarterback Joe Burrow announced this afternoon that he'll be leaving the Buckeyes. Burrow will be a graduate transfer, eligible to play right away in 2018.

Where is Burrow going to end up? A couple of major programs have been mentioned as possible destinations for the former four-star recruit.

Nebraska might be the program that's being mentioned the most. Burrow's father, now a coach at Ohio, played for the Huskers. Burrow was reportedly interested in Nebraska coming out of high school before committing to Ohio State.

However, Burrow might be more likely to end up in the SEC. One ESPN reporter says two other programs are "likelier" destinations than Nebraska.

ESPN college football insider Adam Rittenberg says to watch out for Florida and LSU.

"Know Nebraska has been thrown out there as possible landing spot for Burrow (his dad played there and later was an assistant). But think the SEC -- LSU or Florida -- are likelier destinations," Rittenberg tweeted.

Neither Florida nor LSU has a solid quarterback situation right now. Burrow would likely be either team's starter in 2018.

There will likely be significant interest for Burrow from a number of major college football programs. A decision could be coming in the following weeks. Stay tuned for updates.
