LSU has made its pitch and now plays the waiting game with Ohio State graduate transfer quarterback Joe Burrow, the coveted free agent signal caller and former four-star who is eligible to play immediately after losing out on the Buckeyes' starting job.

Burrow spent three days in Baton Rouge over the weekend on an official visit, touring the program and talking with players and coaches. He took an unofficial to Cincinnati last week and now a third program, North Carolina, has entered the picture in need of help at the position.

LSU fans are using the power of social media to actively recruit Burrow to the Tigers and they aren't the only ones doing so. Just a sample of Burrow's mentions on Twitter this week reveal that his talents are wanted. 

User @LSUpatton writes, "Come to LSU!!! For so long the one thing missing from our program has been a QB! All the athletes in the world but no one can get them the ball. You can be the guy!!! Come be a legend. Nothing like a Saturday night in Death Valley. COME ON JOE!!!'

Another fan, @SportsGuyChat, tells Burrow: "Come play for LSU, over 103,000 screaming fans, amazing atmosphere for football ... imagine throwing to elite receivers, being up 14 to 17 points and a stout defense holding opponents to 7 to 10 points a game."

User @LSUSteve1 made it pretty simply, sending Burrow a photo of LSU's current group of skill players with the succinct message, "Come join us."

Geaux247's Shea Dixon reports the visit from Burrow — who left high school as a four-star quarterback with offers from schools across the country — comes at a time where the Tigers are still searching for answers at the quarterback position. LSU coach Ed Orgeron did not name a starting quarterback coming out of spring ball, meaning the race between junior Justin McMillan, sophomore Myles Brennan and redshirt freshman Lowell Narcisse is still open.

Adding Burrow to the mix would certainly boost the quarterback depth chart, and likely give the Tigers an arm they could turn to as a starter this fall. Burrow could make his decision as early as this week, sources say. LSU is believed to have a leg up on the other two schools after a four-hour meeting with Burrow's father, who's a college coach.

Burrow completed 29-of-39 passes (74.4 percent) for 287 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions during two seasons at Ohio State and battled Dwayne Haskins during spring ball for the starting job. Urban Meyer ultimately decided on Haskins, largely due to his effort during J.T. Barrett's absence vs. Michigan last season.

What would the arrival of Burrow mean for the Tigers? Dixon offered up his thoughts during this week's 247Sports Morning Blitz podcast.

“It would change the dynamic in a big way,” Dixon said. “Let's be honest: ESPN and everyone that's putting out a poll right now has LSU winning about six or seven games this year. Vegas has the [over/under win total] line at seven or seven and a half games. He would be the type who could swing things and win you an extra game or two. Last year, had Danny Etling hit on a couple more deep throws against Tuscaloosa, maybe LSU beats Alabama; it was right there for the taking, and quarterback play left them short.”
