The Tigers are looking for a new starter to replace Danny Etling, another transfer from the Big Ten. Etling spent the last two seasons at LSU after transferring from Purdue. He started 23 games, passed for 27 touchdowns and seven interceptions and was drafted in the seventh round by the New England Patriots in April.
Like Etling, Burrow was four-star recruit out of high school. He joins an LSU team with little experience at quarterback, still searching for a starter after a spring competition involving junior Justin McMillan, sophomore Myles Brennan and redshirt freshman Lowell Narcisse. The Tigers also have a new offensive coordinator, Steve Ensminger, in coach Ed Orgeron’s second full season leading the program.
Burrow also visited Cincinnati after announcing he would transfer from Ohio State.
