Ohio State’s quarterback battle is now down to just two.

Redshirt junior quarterback Joe Burrow said that he intends to leave Ohio State and complete his collegiate career at another football program as a graduate transfer, he announced Tuesday on Twitter.

Burrow said he would decide in the coming weeks which school he would attend for the upcoming season.

Graduating from Ohio State on Sunday, Burrow will be able to play immediately for whichever school he decides to transfer to and has two remaining seasons of eligibility.

Battling with quarterbacks Dwayne Haskins and Tate Martell for the starting position in the 2018 season, the former four-star recruit played in 11 career games for the Buckeyes, completing 74.4 percent of his passes for 287 yards and two touchdowns.

With the transfer, Ohio State is down to three scholarship quarterbacks in Haskins, Martell and Matthew Baldwin, a member of the 2018 class who is recovering from a knee injury.

With the loss of Burrow, the Buckeyes now have 86 scholarship players on the roster. The NCAA mandates that any college team must only have 85 players on a roster to be on scholarship.
