Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Joe Burrow announced his plans to transfer from the school on Twitter. Haskins technically remains in competition with redshirt freshman Tate Martell, but for all intents and purposes now that Burrow's out of the picture, it's his starting job unless he has an unexpected stumble in August camp or runs into some sort of health issue. Burrow passed for 238 yards and two touchdowns in the spring game on April 14, and his last pass at Ohio Stadium was a Hail Mary for a touchdown on an untimed down.

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

Burrow arrived in Ohio State as part of the 2015 recruiting class but has failed to make an impact during his tenure with the school.

"I came here to play", Burrow said after the spring game. I will decide where I will play next year in the coming weeks. "I didn't come here to sit on the bench for four years", Burrow told the Columbus Dispatch in March.

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

Because he graduated, Burrow can transfer and immediately use his remaining two years of eligibility.
