J.T. Barrett will be back for his senior season in 2017 at Ohio State, he announced Wednesday.
The Buckeyes quarterback is 26-4 as a starter in his career and has the chance to break a lot of school and conference records next season. Still, he has had his fair share of critics in the last two seasons — especially after Ohio State’s disappointing 31-0 loss to Clemson in last week’s Fiesta Bowl.
Barrett — who threw for 2,555 yards, 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions with a 61.5 completion percentage this year — will be working with a new offensive staff next season. The Buckeyes hired Ryan Day as their new quarterbacks coach and are expected to name former Indiana coach Kevin Wilson their new offensive coordinator.
So how do you feel about Barrett’s return, Ohio State fans? Are you excited for his final season, or did you want someone else to take the snaps for the Buckeyes in 2017?
