Who is Joe Burrow - and what are chances he lands at LSU?

For some time now the question would be which quarterback replaces J.T. Barrett as the Ohio State football team's starting quarterback in 2018?

"I came here to play, I didn't come here to sit on the bench for four years", Burrow said after completing 15 of 22 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns.

"After weeks of struggling with this decision, I have chose to leave Ohio State and explore other options", Burrow tweeted out on Tuesday. During training camp in 2017, Burrow and Haskins competed to be the No. 2 quarterback, a role that ultimately went to Haskins after Burrow broke his hand in August.

Burrow has not yet been granted his release from Ohio State, so no visits have been planned.

According to Adam Rittenberg of ESPN.com, LSU and Florida are two likely landing spots for Burrow-both SEC powers held open competitions without conclusive results this spring. "I will decide where I will play next year in the coming weeks", Burrow wrote. He redshirted as a true freshman and appeared in just 10 games over the past two seasons. Burrow, who'd have instant eligibility elsewhere, would be highly coveted if he leaves Columbus.

On Monday, Dan Mullen tried to quiet down the rumors by saying the Gators were not interested in adding a grad transfer quarterback, "right now". Should Burrow decide to remain at the FBS level, he can play in 2019. With Burrow officially on the market, could that change?

Burrow, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound former Ohio Mr. Football, grew up in Athens, where his father, Jimmy, is the longtime defensive coordinator for coach Frank Solich at Ohio University.

An Ohio State spokesman said coach Urban Meyer had no immediate comment.

With Burrow making his decision, Ohio State's quarterback battle is a bit easier as it now down to two different players.
