    Haven't seen this posted around much.
    Joe Burrow graduated yesterday. Some internet sites are saying he's leaving and looking at UF, TX, and Nebraska. Watched highlights from their spring game. Dude can ball and much more familiar with spread. He would be a significant upgrade to anything we got on our bench.

    Anyone hearing or read anything?

    This has already been discussed on this board. Most think he'd be pretty good, unfortunately, he'd be like Zaire, coming in the summer, although he would have 2 years remaining of eligibility I think.

    Yeah but Ohio State plays Nebraska.
    Can't imagine he would go that route.

    There's been a whole lot of discussion on Joe here over the last several weeks. Alot of us want him here as he'd be the best QB on the roster right away.

    Right, and Guessing can go where he wants because he graduated?

    Meyer would never allow him to transfer to a big 10 school.

    We need Burrow. Would be a huge get. Plus I suspect Franks transfers at some point in the next 365 days so it would help with our numbers at the QB position going forward.

    I’ve seen all the talk about him, but I can’t remember a single interview with him where he says he’s transferring, so I don’t believe he’s mentioned ANY schools.

    All he's said publicly is that he'd have a hard decision if he were not named the starter, but would lean toward staying at OSU. Anything else is likely QB desperate fan bases exersising their Googlefu to find a rumor they like. He's admitted that he's considering a transfer, but that's as far as it goes.

    The hyper competitive Meyer I remember would award Burrow the starting job early in the season to keep him around, but unless Burrow is lights out he'd give the job over to one of the other two before the end of the season. (Being 3 deep at QB is important).

    There's a 247 article just recently posted w/ OSU "insiders" discussing his transfer, saying that UF is a real possibility (and makes more sense than Nebraska). This will be interesting to watch unfold...
