Very early Tuesday afternoon, Joe Burrow announced that, as many had expected, he had chose to transfer from Ohio State. One of the extra spots was given to Stanford grad transfer and New Orleans native Terrence Alexander, who should add depth to the Tigers' secondary.

The Advocate's Ross Dellenger reported Tuesday that LSU and Cincinnati have gotten permission to talk to the 6-3, 215-pound rising junior. Burrow will visit the Bearcats on Thursday and head to Baton Rouge, La. this weekend. That's where former 4-star quarterback Joe Burrow finds himself.

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, a pro-style quarterback, was apparently beaten out by redshirt freshman Dwayne Haskins to become the new Ohio State quarterback. 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.

A graduate transfer, Burrow will be eligible to play this season.

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.
