Will be updated.Ohio State quarterback Joe Burrow says he will transfer.

"After weeks of struggling with this decision, I have chose to leave Ohio State and explore other options", Burrow wrote.

That means coach Ed Orgeron and his staff could be on the lookout for a graduate transfer option, and they've been granted permission to talk to an interesting candidate.

"I had two last year on scholarship and thankfully made it through the year", he said.

Because he graduated from Ohio State on Sunday, the dual-threat quarterback can transfer as a graduate student and play immediately.

Stanford cornerback Terrence Alexander, a graduate transfer, signed with LSU last month to occupy one of two open spots remaining in the 2018 signing class.

Haskins tweeted in support of Burrow on Tuesday, writing, "Good luck to you brotha!"

Burrow had the best spring game of the quarterbacks, finishing 15-for-22 (68 percent) for 238 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Tate Martell will be the the backup, but he redshirted last season, his first on campus.

Even before that, Frost and Husker coaches expressed confidence in the team's three young quarterbacks - freshman Adrian Martinez, redshirt freshman Tristan Gebbia and sophomore walk-on Andrew Bunch - throughout spring ball.

Burrow never won the starting job at OSU, but he played well when he saw the field and has the resume of a four-star high school recruit. 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.

Reached for comment on Tuesday, Burrow's father Jimmy Burrow said the family would not be releasing any further statements.
