I'm not sure UC was a place that checked all the boxes Burows wanted when he was looking to commit, depth chart was OK but all the other spots were not that much better than tOSU to move the needle to the 2nd fiddle in state school. His perfect fit was probably Michigan State or Wisconsin and maybe he should have looked that way but his dad knows this game and he must have went tOSU for a reason. Nonetheless he is going to graduate in May so depending how the spring plays out he can have a lot of options and be a decent free agent prospect for a QB needy program. A lot of tOSU players transfer to Duke, going to graduate school there for free would not stink. Also Florida is another program that could come into play as Emory Jones might not be as polished as advertised.
Good insight. I just remember this kid in the state championship game slinging the ball all over with accuracy and touch, routinely going to his 2nd & 3rd target options and wondering at the time why he was going to Ohio State. It just seemed like the Big 12 would have been a natural fit for him.

As an aside, does he have two years of eligibility left? If he does, he will be the biggest name in college football's off season free market period.
