Potential Landing Spots for Joe Burrow

By Oliver Mauntel

Last Monday, the now-former Ohio State quarterback announced that he had decided to transfer out and complete his final two years of eligibility elsewhere. Burrow had been competing with Dwayne Haskins for the starting job throughout the spring. Since Burrow is a graduate transfer, he will have the opportunity to play immediately, rather than sitting out a year. Although Burrow was unable to secure the starting job at Ohio State, he is still talented enough to start nearly anywhere he chooses to play. As Burrow may be the most highly coveted transfer on the market, there will be a fair share of teams clamoring for his services.

Kansas (27-7): Although this isn’t one of Bill Self’s most talented teams, Kansas still found its way to a number one seed. Devonte’ Graham is the leader of this team, and a candidate for national player of the year.
