Just wondering since there is so much being placed on taking a QB for the 14 class, even though we got Barrett (arguably the best DT QB) for the 2013 class, what is everyone's thought on Harris at this point in his career vs. Barrett when he was at this point?
Watching highlights I feel like Harris may be more athletic (not that Barrett is a slouch), but that Barrett would be considered a better passer.
Harris has skill throwing the ball, and has an edge on rushing and overall athleticism, so I would say pre-senior year I'd give it to Harris as a better player
It's hard to take out all the stuff I like about Barrett. Obviously his leadership and the fact that he loves being a Buckeye are a big part of what makes him great for tOSU, but I think in terms of on the field play, Harris may have a slight edge in terms of where Barrett was at this point in high school.
That doesn't mean Harris would show up and make it so Barrett didn't play. I in fact think Barrett is going to be a great heir to Braxton's spot, but Harris would for sure challenge Barrett and make him step his game up to that next level.
