Joe Burrow announced that he would be transferring from Ohio State earlier today via Twitter:
After weeks of struggling with this decision, I have decided to leave Ohio State and explore other options. My teammates and coaches all know the love I feel for them. I will decide where I will play next year in the coming weeks.

Joe Burrow was the backup to J.T. Barrett last year before suffering an injury to his throwing hand and was in the midst of a QB battle with Dwayne Haskins and Tate Martell. With this news, it is increasingly likely that Dwayne Haskins will be named the starter for the 2018 Ohio State football season.
Burrow has not announced which school he’ll be transferring to yet.
One particular Buckeye was excited by the idea of playing against the now former-Buckeye.
Can’t wait to sack you 😬🤙 https://t.co/e8osMXKIPO

And Dwayne Haskins, who Burrow was competing with for the starting QB job, extended his gratitude to Burrow for being a mentor.
Good luck to you brotha! Appreciate you for making me better, see you at the top 🙏 https://t.co/aGUS8WpGE8
