In a conclusion that has been suspected for months, quarterback Joe Burrow will not finish his college career at Ohio State.

Facing the possibility of sitting as a backup for a third season at Ohio State, quarterback Joe Burrow on Tuesday announced his intention to transfer.

Although coach Urban Meyer didn't declare a front-runner for the job, both he and Burrow admitted decisions would need to be made. "My teammates and coaches all know the love I feel for them".

"I didn't come here to sit on the bench for four years", he told reporters in Columbus, "and I know I'm a pretty darn good quarterback".

It's also worth noting that Burrow transferring to Nebraska would mean a showdown with Ohio State on November 3, whether that's something Burrow desires or hopes to avoid. He will have two years of eligibility left at whichever school he chooses. "Appreciate you for making me better, see you at the top".

Burrow's decision removes most of the drama from an anticipated quarterback derby in fall training camp. Regardless of the whom Ohio State would have chosen there was not going to be a lot of experience under center.

Trask is a redshirt sophomore, and Jones is a true freshman.

While some of that can be chalked up to bad bounces or San Antonio's defense, the fact of the matter is the shots didn't go down. There were bright spots for the Pels, but none bright enough to avoid being eclipsed by the sheer force of the Warriors attack.

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.

Upon arriving at Ohio State, Burrow spent all three years behind Barrett.

During spring practice, Burrow said he was conflicted about what he would do after graduation.

Burrow, meanwhile, redshirted in 2015 with the Buckeyes before serving as a backup in 2016 and 2017.

Ohio State opens the 2018 season September 1 against Oregon State.

It's not exactly the big time, but OU is still in the FBS Division and if Burrow plays well enough, the National Football League scouts and talent evaluators will find him.
