On Tuesday, quarterback Joe Burrow announced he has chose to leave Ohio State as a graduate transfer to play somewhere else in 2018.

Burrow, who served as a backup for J.T. Barrett for two years (along with a redshirt year), was competing for the starting job with Dwayne Haskins and Tate Martell this offseason. Over the last two seasons he has appeared in 11 games and thrown for 287 yards and two touchdowns while completing 29-of-39 attempts.

Although coach Urban Meyer didn't declare a front-runner for the job, both he and Burrow admitted decisions would need to be made.

"I came here to play", Burrow said after the spring game.

Upon arriving at Ohio State, Burrow spent all three years behind Barrett. I will decide where I will play next year in the coming weeks.

Haskins tweeted in support of Burrow on Tuesday, writing, "Good luck to you brotha!" " "I feel pretty good about the guys we have and the depth that we're creating at that position and the competition at that position".

Haskins backed up J.T. Barrett last season and played well in relief of Barrett in Ohio State's win at MI. A redshirt junior, he still has two seasons of eligibility remaining. "Appreciate you for making me better, see you at the top".
