LSU HC Ed Orgeron said that he does not want to rotate quarterbacks during games.
Orgeron is hopeful that he'll be able to name a definitive starter from Joe Burrow, Lowell Narcisse, Myles Brennan and Justin McMillan by the start of the season. Should none emerge from this hatch, though, Coach O has no intention of muddling his offense with multiple in-game signal-callers. If we're to handicap this race, we give Burrow the inside track. That would seem to be the general consensus, as well. A wrinkle on the "just one quarterback" comments -- Narcisse could potentially see time out of the Wild Cat even if he does not start.

ESPN's Alex Scarborough believes LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow has the edge on the starting quarterback position.

Scarborough explained quarterbacks Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse, and Justin McMillan "had their shot to move up the leaderboard this spring and failed to do so. Then Ohio State's Burrow hit the market as a grad transfer and the Tigers scooped him up, making him the instant favorite to win the competition." LSU HC Ed Orgeron denies that Burrows was guaranteed the job when he signed, but that is likely a tactic to keep the quarterback room competitive.

Former Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett said that LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow is "smart and knows where to go with the ball."

"[Burrow]'s really smart, tough, willing to do anything it takes to win and he slings the ball. He can throw the ball around the yard," Barrett said while taking part in a rookie event with the New Orleans Saints last week. The former Ohio State signal-caller is now sharing a state with Burrow, who took part in spring practice with the Buckeyes before transferring down to LSU earlier this month. Dwayne Haskins looks to have taken over the reins for Barrett in Columbus. Burrow will be competing with Myles Brennan and Lowell Narcisse for starting signal-caller rights in August camp. We've seen the now-former OSU quarterback in only limited capacity to date. During his time in the program, he completed 29-of-39 passes for 287 yards with a 2/0 TD/INT ratio while appearing in mop-up duty.

LSU officially announced the redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow has transferred to the school from Ohio State.

Burrow made the announcement on Friday that he'd be attending LSU, but it's now official with the school welcoming him on Twitter. Burrow will be immediately eligible to play as a graduate transfer, but he'll also have two years of eligibility remaining. The 6-foot-3, 216-pound signal-caller will be given a chance to winning the starting quarterback job, but he will have to beat out Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Joe McMillan to do so.

Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow confirmed on Twitter that he is transferring to LSU.

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Tom Groeschen was first to report Burrow's transfer intent for Death Valley on Friday, with the Ohio State signal-caller tweeting confirmation a short time later. The 6-foot-3, 216-pounder will have two years eligibility remaining with LSU and will be battling it out with Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Joe McMillan for starting honors this summer.

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Tom Groeschen reports that Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow is transferring to LSU.

Per Groeschen, Burrow's decision came down to Cincinnati or LSU. He visited North Carolina earlier this week, but the Tar Heels apparently failed to make the cut for the ultimate decision. The 6-foot-3, 216-pounder's choice of LSU makes complete sense, as the program's spring quarterbacks competition between Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Joe McMillan saw no clear frontrunner emerge. Even with the publicity surrounding this transfer, it's important to keep in mind that we saw very, very little of Burrow at Ohio State outside of occasional mop-up duty, so it should not automatically be assumed that he'll be a lock starter with his new team. We expect a competitive camp from all involved in what figures to be a adventuresome year for the program now that Leonard Fournette and Derrius Guice are no longer on campus to carry the offensive load.

Rivals' Sean Callahan reports that transferring Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow will visit North Carolina this week.

Burrow reportedly checked out both Cincinnati and LSU last week. North Carolina, it would appear, is going to be the final stop on the redshirt junior's visitation tour. Per Callahan, he'll likely make a decision on a future home by the end of the week. At UNC, he would be competing with Chazz Surratt and Nathan Elliott for starting rights in the upcoming campaign. If a darkhorse is to jump up late in this race for Burrow's services, Wyoming, Arkansas and Arizona State would fit the bill. At this juncture, though, we expect him to land with one of LSU, Cincinnati or North Carolina. The former four-star recruit will have two years eligibility remaining with his program-to-be.

SEC Country's Alex Hickey reports that transferring Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow will visit LSU this coming weekend, while Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman relays that he'll be visiting Cincinnati on Thursday.

LSU and Cincinnati were both teams linked to Burrow almost immediately upon his announcing an intent to transfer on Tuesday. The Tigers went through the spring with Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Joe McMillan battling it out in competition, but all indications are that the team is not close to settling on a starting quarterback. In what will be a potential hot-seat year for HC Ed Orgeron for the upcoming season, Burrow may well represent the safest option at this juncture. He didn't see the field much while at Ohio State, but played well when given spot opportunities. As for Cincinnati, Burrow is already well-acquainted with HC Luke Fickell, who previously served as defensive coordinator at OSU. Beyond those two programs, keep an eye on Wyoming, Arkansas and Arizona State.

Sports Illustrated's Andy Staples is reporting that LSU and Cincinnati have both been given permission to talk with transferring Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow.

In addition, Rivals' Sean Callahan passes along that Wyoming, Arkansas and Arizona State are also showing early interest. A few programs Callahan is saying are not in the current mix? Florida and Nebraska. Burrow announced his intention to transfer from Ohio State as a graduate on Tuesday after failing to significantly push Dwayne Haskins for the starting lead this spring. He'll have two years eligibility remaining and will be able to play immediately this year as a graduate. We understand why both Florida and Nebraska -- who house young quarterbacks in Emory Jones and Adrian Martinez -- would be reticent to bring a bull into the developing quarterbacks room. Our early money's on LSU. The Tigers just went through an unsettled spring at signal-caller with Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Joe McMillan and beyond that, we view this year as a pivotal one for HC Ed Orgeron. Burrow would presumably bring some stability to the table.

Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow will transfer as a graduate.

There have been whispers about a potential transfer from Burrow throughout the offseason, with OSU HC Urban Meyer indicating at the beginning of March that the staff would be in touch with him as to his standing on the depth chart at the close of spring practice. Reading between the tea leaves, Dwayne Haskins (who backed up J.T. Barrett last year) looks to be heading into the summer as presumptive starter for the Buckeyes. Burrow initially signed with Ohio State as a three-star recruit in the winter of 2015 and went on to complete 29-of-39 passes for 287 yards and a 2/0 TD/INT ratio in spare action while in the program. As for where he might be eyeing next, 247Sports' Chris Hummer floats Iowa State, Florida, Nebraska, UCLA (who earlier landed Wilton Speight from Michigan), Texas and LSU as possibilities.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said that he would let redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow know his place in the pecking order at the end of spring practice.

Burrow (6'3/215) will be graduating later this spring and could potentially transfer if he's on the outside looking in in competition with Dwayne Haskins and Tate Martell. Meyer has said that he's already been in touch with the quarterback's family. During OSU's first spring practice session on Tuesday, it appeared that Haskins and Burrow were splitting reps with the first-team offense. Expect this competition to receive a measure of clarity over the coming weeks.

Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Joe Burrow (hand) has received medical clearance to resume practicing.

Burrow broke a bone in his throwing hand in late August. He began tossing the ball again in the practice week leading up to a Week 2 loss to Oklahoma and actually was considered probable for this past Saturday's game against Army -- though he only would have seen the field in an emergency. He and Dwayne Haskins will work as backups to J.T. Barrett moving forward.

Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Joe Burrow (hand) is probable for Saturday's game against Army.

Burrow broke a bone in his hand as August camp was winding down. He only figures to see the field on Saturday if the Buckeyes are down both J.T. Barrett and Dwayne Haskins.

Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Joe Burrow (hand) has resumed throwing.

Burrow broke a bone in his throwing hand near the end of August camp. With the redshirt sophomore signal-caller out, Dwayne Haskins has been serving as backup to J.T. Barrett. While there is no concrete timetable for Burrow's return, Buckeyes HC Urban Meyer said that he is "pretty close."

Ohio State redshirt sophomore Joe Burrow (hand) is out indefinitely.

The Buckeyes' backup signal-caller broke a bone in his throwing hand during a practice on Monday. Burrow was in the middle of a battle with redshirt freshman Dwayne Haskins to serve as veteran starter J.T. Barrett's backup. There is not currently a timetable for his return.
