Ohio State quarterback Joe Burrow has officially hit the graduate transfer market. One day later, it's apparent the Tigers are indeed in the mix for the former four-star. The last can either be given to another grad transfer - such as Burrow - awarded to a walk-on or be used as a 26th scholarship in LSU's 2019 recruiting class.
Burrow just earned his diploma from Ohio State, meaning he does not have to miss any time - he can play this fall in addition to having two years of eligibility remaining. This move would make sense for Burrow because not only is Cincinnati an OH program that's close to his hometown of Athens, but he'd also.
LSU and Cincinnati have been granted permission to speak to potential graduate transfer quarterback Joe Burrow, according to two reports. Sources suggest Burrow could make visits in the very near future and make a decision soon after, so expect a fast-paced process. Both LSU and Cincinnati were on the list.More news: Cannes to mark movie industry changes with '100 women' moment

LSU's quarterbacks didn't have a great spring, as neither Myles Brennan nor Lowell Narcisse or any other quarterback had memorable performances. Nearly immediately, schools such as LSU and Florida, among others, were attached to the graduate transfer quarterback. While McMillan had the best spring game of the group as a dual threat option, there is no clear leader entering the summer.
While the Buckeyes have yet to announce the starter for 2018, Burrow's plans to transfer would appear to back up the speculation that Haskins will be the team's No. 1 quarterback.
