The top quarterback transfer in the country is visiting an SEC power this weekend. He would be immediately eligible if he goes there.

This week, Ohio State quarterback Joe Burrow announced he was transferring. This wasn't a surprise, considering Burrow wasn't expected to win the starting job and as a graduate transfer, he could play right away at his next stop.

Burrow actually has two seasons remaining at his next program, making him even more valuable. That's one of the reasons LSU is pursuing him.

After visiting Cincinnati, Burrow is on campus in Baton Rouge this weekend for a lengthy visit with the Tigers.

If Burrow picks LSU, he'll join a crowded but unproven quarterback competition that includes Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Justin McMillan. Brennan threw 24 passes last season, McMillan attempted one pass in 2016 and Narcisse hasn't played.

While Burrow's resume isn't necessarily thick, he has much more experience than any of those three QBs. For his career at OSU, Burrow was 29-for-39 for 287 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 53 yards and a score.

Cincinnati is LSU's main competition right now, but new schools could potentially get involved with Burrow.

We'll keep you updated on any new developments in Burrow's recruitment.
