LSU, Cincinnati already in pursuit of ex-Ohio State QB Joe Burrow

On Tuesday, it was reported LSU could be a potential landing spot for former Ohio State quarterback Joe Burrow.

Of the three LSU quarterbacks on the roster, McMillan performed the best in the spring game as he threw for 182 yards and a touchdown on 27 pass attempts. My teammates and coaches all know the love I feel for them. Not only was Burrow a highly sought after 4-star high school plyer, he will transfer in with two years of eligibility remaining. He said he would decide on a new school in the coming weeks.

LSU has been looking for a quarterback for what seems like a decade now, and would welcome Burrow with open arms to immediately insert into their own quarterback competition.

By the time the spring has come to a close teams have usually whittled their depth chart down to two passers, leaving a third option a luxury rather than a priority. The third candidate, Alan Bowman is a true freshman who has impressed this spring but who remains a bit of a long shot to win the job. His father, Jimmy, is the longtime defensive coordinator at Ohio. During training camp in 2017, Burrow and Haskins competed to be the No. 2 quarterback, a role that ultimately went to Haskins after Burrow broke his hand in August.

I think the ideal fit for Burrow, however, is with Dan Mullen and the Florida Gators.

Burrow graduated Sunday with a degree in family resource management. And I know I'm a pretty darn good quarterback.

The Advocate's Ross Delenger and SI's Andy Staples both say the two schools have already been granted permission to contact Burrow. "And I want to play somewhere".
