Former Ohio State Quarterback Joe Burrow took to Twitter Tuesday afternoon to announce his intentions for the fall.
After weeks of struggling with this decision, I have decided to leave Ohio State and explore other options. My teammates and coaches all know the love I feel for them. I will decide where I will play next year in the coming weeks.

The former Mr. Football in Ohio was competing with Dwayne Haskins for the starting QB job for the Buckeyes. After graduating this past weekend, Joe’s Father Jimmy took to Twitter to congratulate his son, with an interesting message attached.

The speculation started to run rampant after that, and now Joe has made it official. Now that he has graduated, he is able to transfer to any school and play immediately. Burrow also has two years of eligibility remaining, so he can play a rare two years after his graduate transfer process.
Dwayne Haskins is likely penciled in as the starting Quarterback now, with Tate Martell backing him up.
Burrow said he has not decided on a destination yet, but will come to one in the coming weeks. Likely landing spots are the Florida Gators, Nebraska Cornhuskers, or potentially the Ohio Bobcats, where his father Jimmy is a coach.
Best of luck to Joe as he continues his football career.
