On Tuesday, it was reported LSU could be a potential landing spot for former Ohio State quarterback Joe Burrow.

That means coach Ed Orgeron and his staff could be on the lookout for a graduate transfer option, and they've been granted permission to talk to an interesting candidate.

What's interesting about Burrow and LSU is that if Burrow is as good as his Ohio State teammates say he is, he could conceivably elevate a program that has lacked dynamic quarterback play since Zach Mettenberger left following the 2013 season. McMillan got the nod in the Tigers' spring game, but Brennan is the perceived favorite to start.

Burrow is 29-39 (74.4 percent) for 287 yards and two touchdowns in his career. Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman added that Burrow is visiting Cincinnati on Thursday and LSU this weekend.

Burrow, who served as a backup for J.T. Barrett for two years (along with a redshirt year), was competing for the starting job with Dwayne Haskins and Tate Martell this offseason.

In three years as the Ole Miss head coach, Orgeron could never settle on a starter and failed to put a competent quarterback on the field. He said he would make a decision about where he'll play in 2018 in the coming weeks.
