One of the top quarterback prospects in America has committed to Urban Meyer and Ohio State, as Wichita Falls (TX) Rider four-star J.T. Barrett pledged to the Buckeyes Tuesday morning.
The 6-foot-2, 205-pound, dual threat athlete is the tenth commitment to Ohio State's 2013 recruiting class.
"I have committed to Ohio State," Barrett stated via text message.
Barrett visited Ohio State last month with his father, and chose the Buckeyes over the likes of Baylor, LSU, Nebraska and others.
"I would describe myself as a quarterback that can throw the football from the pocket, but with the ability to be mobile, in and out of the pocket," Barrett said in March. "I can escape trouble and either run or make plays throwing the ball down the field. I can get better at every part of my game, but I really want to be more consistent."
"I'm working on accuracy with the football the most, but I have a lot of things I still need to work on to be the player I need to be next season," he continued. "Accuracy and where to place the ball on my throws means the most to me."
