Barrett Makes Ten

The good news just keeps on rolling for the Ohio State Buckeyes, as they picked up their tenth verbal pledge for the class of 2013 in the form of QB JT Barrett.

Barrett is a 6-2/205 signal caller from Rider High School in Wichita Falls, Texas. He was recently up in Columbus for an unofficial visit with his father and told us then that he had a great time, but was not ready to pull the trigger on a commitment just yet. After a few weeks of thinking, JT decided to give Urban Meyer the good news today, picking the Bucks over other schools such as LSU, Baylor, Texas Tech, Nebraska, Ole Miss, and others.

This pick up is huge for Ohio State, as Barrett is rated as one of the top quarterbacks in the country for 2013 and fits Urban Meyer's offense like a glove. He now becomes the heir apparent to Braxton Miller and will likely have the opportunity to learn under the current OSU quarterback for two seasons when he arrives in Columbus.

Barrett is the first in his position and tenth overall commit for Ohio State in a class that should number somewhere between 15-20. There is more good news sure to come on 11W over the next few days as the Spring Game approaches, so be sure to keep coming back to check the latest scoop.
