Florida is an ideal fit for Ohio State transfer quarterback Joe Burrow

Very early Tuesday afternoon, Joe Burrow announced that, as many had expected, he had chose to transfer from Ohio State.

Reached Tuesday by the Journal Star, Jimmy Burrow declined comment and said the family will not be talking publicly until Joe makes a decision. My teammates and coaches all know the love I feel for them. He managed to land Texas transfer Jevan Snead, but he didn't play a snap in Oxford until 2008 - the year after Orgeron was ousted. Burrow tweeted that he would leave the Buckeyes to "explore other options". I will decide where I.

Burrow spent 2016, his redshirt freshman year, as the backup to the now-departed J.T. Barrett, playing in five games in mop-up duty and completing 22 of 28 passes for 226 yards and two touchdowns. Thanks to a redshirt season in 2015, he'll have two more years of eligibility.

For quarterback-needy teams, this is about as close to a free agent as there is in college football.

Gas prices could reach $2.75 per gallon by summer
The most expensive gas price averages in Georgia were in Brunswick at $2.75 per gallon, Atlanta at $2.75 and Savannah at $2.74. Pump prices rose in 35 states last week and fell in 15, much improved over the prior week when prices rose in every state.

I think the ideal fit for Burrow, however, is with Dan Mullen and the Florida Gators.

Burrow appeared in seven games in his career in nearly exclusively mop-up duty, passing for 287 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 63 yards and another score. He could be what Mullen is looking for to provide an immediate impact at the position and some stability and the most important position in the sport.

"Burrow, a 6'3", 215-pounder from The Plains, Ohio, made clear a transfer was a possibility after the spring game.
