Burrow announced his plans on his Twitter account on Tuesday, two days after his graduation.
Redshirt freshman Lowell Narcisse and junior Justin McMillan were also part of a tight battle throughout the spring to become the next starting quarterback at LSU. Burrow passed for 238 yards and two touchdowns in the spring game on April 14, and his last pass at Ohio Stadium was a Hail Mary for a touchdown on an untimed down.
LSU and Cincinnati have been granted permission to speak to potential graduate transfer quarterback Joe Burrow, according to two reports.
He appeared in seven games in his career in nearly exclusively mop-up duty, passing for 287 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 63 yards and another score. Burrow was running behind Dwayne Haskins Jr.in the competition to replace the departed J.T. Barrett as starter. He will be in Baton Rouge, La. this weekend. He said he would make a decision about where he'll play in 2018 in the coming weeks.
Sorta recruiting, but does LSU have a legit shot to land transfer Joey Burrow?
In addition to LSU, Nebraska, Cincinnati, UCLA and OH have been mentioned as potential landing spots for the former 4-star prospect.
OR has proven to be a better head coach at LSU than he was at Ole Miss, but he could easily revert to his impatient ways of old.
Earlier this month, Orgeron told a crowd in Houston that a graduate transfer at quarterback is "very possible".
Brennan is not one to back away from a challenge, but he'll have to think about the long term.
Orgeron mentioned he does not believe any of his three quarterbacks have sought a transfer, but that could change after LSU declares one of the three the starter.
