The University of Cincinnati was granted permission to contact Ohio State transfer Joe Burrow according to SI.com. They also say LSU was given the green light to reach out to him. The redshirt junior announced Tuesday that he would be moving on from the Buckeyes.
Luke Fickell was defensive coordinator at Ohio State for part of Burrow's career at Ohio State. I would imagine the biggest selling point for Fickell would be playing time. I'd imagine Burrow would beat out Hayden Moore for the starting job from day one.
Burrow talked with reporters about it in March. He said "I want to play somewhere.” You can watch the interview below.
