After his graduation from Ohio State this past weekend, Buckeye backup QB Joe Burrow announced his plans to graduate transfer from the program on Tuesday. As a grad transfer, he will be eligible immediately and has two years of college ball left to play.

Burrow, who backed up J.T. Barrett over the past few years, was hoping to get his shot as the Buckeyes starting quarterback in 2018. However, it appears that sophomore Dwayne Haskins has beaten him out to be #1 on the depth chart, leading Burrow to make good on the promise he talked about this spring.

"I came here to play. I didn’t come here to sit on the bench for four years. And I know I’m a pretty darn good quarterback. And I want to play somewhere."

Burrow, an Ohio native, threw for over 11,000 yards in high school and is sure to land at a big-time program this summer. Be sure to check out our colleagues over at Eleven Warriors for more analysis.
