Joe Burrow was listed as a quarterback who could possibly transfer by 247Sports.

Ohio State didn't land four-star quarterback recruit Emory Jones this past week, but the Buckeyes still have a number of good options under center for 2018. Dwayne Haskins showed promise this past season in relief of J.T. Barrett, and redshirt freshman Tate Martell is regarded as a potential future starter as well.

Where does that leave Joe Burrow? Well, according to 247Sports, he's one of the quarterbacks they could could transfer in the near future.

Here's what they had to say:

Joe Burrow, Ohio State – Another rather interesting case in the Big Ten East, Burrow is a talented quarterback once thought of as the successor to J.T. Barrett. But there are no guarantees in a crowded quarterback room that includes Dwayne Haskins and former start recruit Tate Martell, who is a true freshman. Burrow, a rising redshirt junior, could stay during the spring and see where he stands. But if Burrow falls behind Haskins, which is what occurred during the 2017 season after Burrow suffered an injury, he could be an interesting transfer case. Burrow’s flashed well in limited action during his career completing 74 percent of his passes and throwing two touchdowns against no interceptions.

Burrow has yet to signal that he's thinking of transferring, but we'll know more after bowl season.
