Quarterback Joe Burrow is leaving Ohio State as a graduate transfer and will play his final two college seasons elsewhere, he announced Tuesday.

Burrow backed up J.T. Barrett in 2016, but he was knocked out of the race to be Barrett's backup last August when he broke a bone in his hand during preseason practice.

Burrow bested Haskins in the spring game last month. He had competed with Dwayne Haskins and Tate Martell for the starting job throughout spring practice, which concluded April 14.

With playing time unlikely at Ohio State, Burrow's move into the open market is official. However, Haskins' spring performance displayed his need for fine-tuning his touch on deep balls, completing just two of his eight pass attempts over 20 yards. Because he graduated from Ohio State, he can transfer and play immediately as a graduate student without having to sit out a year. "I want to play somewhere".

Burrow redshirted in 2015 and appeared in 11 games as a reserve in the past two seasons, passing for 287 yards and two touchdowns.

He never go the opportunity Haskins got to show his wares at a meaningful juncture of a big game, and Meyer made mention of Haskins performance against MI previous year being a factor in the competition coming into spring.

Quarterback Joe Burrow #10 of the Ohio State Buckeyes calls out signals during a game against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights on September 30, 2017 at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey. He still has two years of eligibility remaining.
