LSU QB Joe Burrow is having a monster year with the Tigers. The Heisman favorite has made light work of LSU’s opponents this season. He’ll look to add to his already stellar year on Saturday against No. 4 Georgia in the SEC Championship.
Burrow has already become an LSU legend. But he didn’t start his collegiate career with the Tigers. As many are aware, the elite QB started with another College Football Playoff contender – the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Not too many players choose to leave a prestigious program like Ohio State. And as Burrow revealed in a recent interview, it was a very tough decision. The Tigers’ QB recently revealed the first person he told about the transfer when his mind was made up that he wanted to attend LSU.
“Coach (Urban) Meyer,” Burrow said, via 247Sports. “It was pretty emotional. They didn’t want me to leave. And I didn’t want to leave, but I thought it was best for my career. That was my first career. That’s where I went to college first. That’s where I graduated. That’s where I learned to become a man on my own. It was hard to leave.”
Burrow has shown nothing but class and respect for his teammates, coaches and even opponents. His words regarding Meyer and Ohio State echo what he’s shown on and off the field this season.
The Tigers look to continue their dominant play in the SEC Championship against No. 4 Georgia on Saturday.
