There isn’t as much buzz surrounding the quarterback position at Ohio State camp as there was a year ago. That would pretty much be impossible.
Even so, J.T. Barrett and the Buckeyes are on Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman’s list of the top 10 quarterback groups in the country, coming in at No. 7.
With Cardale Jones now in the NFL, Barrett knows the job is his alone. The last time that was the case, in 2014, Barrett finished fifth in the Heisman voting.
It’s those numbers Feldman cited in his list. Here’s what else he had to say about Ohio State’s QBs, including Joe Burrows and Dwayne Haskins.
Barrett (45 TDs, 14 INTs and 22 rushing TDs in 2014) is a good fit for Urban Meyer’s system, and he should be more comfortable knowing the job is all his. Joe Burrows and Dwayne Haskins both have more prototypical QB size at 6-3 and are working to get a better grasp of the scheme.
Heres’ the full list:
10. Texas Tech
9. Washington State
7. Ohio State
4. Notre Dame
