J.T. Barrett Is A Buckeye !!!

Written April 18th, 2012 by MaliBuckeye

If you’re like me, you can’t wait for Saturday’s Spring Game.

And, that also makes you like Texas QB J.T. Barrett, who wasted no time in becoming the tenth member of the Ohio State 2013 Recruiting Class. Who needs a Recruiting Weekend to make it official, right?

Lone Star Buckeye

The 6’2″, 205 pound QB from Rider HS in Wichata Falls TX has an impressive offer sheet, including Mississippi State, Nebraska, Baylor and LSU. I guess that’s to be expected when you’re the type of athlete who gets awarded “Best Arm” at December’s Under Armour Junior Combine. According to some, he outperformed Shane Morris at the Elite 11 Camp

Oh, and did I mention his 3.75 GPA?  Yeah, there’s that too. He visited Columbus in late March with his father, and was impressed by Coach Hermann and Coach Meyer’s vision for the program.

As always, highlights after the jump-

There’s speculation that the Buckeyes will only take two QBs in this class if they are both exceptional; it’s safe to say that Barrett meets that criterion.

Welcome to the Buckeye Family, J.T.!

    Braxton Miller 2.0 – perfect for Meyer’s offense and a great get for the Buckeyes.

    Exactly…he looks very similar to Braxton. It’s great that Meyer has locked in good QBs for the next several years. Wonder if Trubisky comes now that he got that Bama offer and J.T’s commited now? I say no big deal if he doesn’t. IMO he did beat Morris at the Elite 11;-)
