GLENDALE, Ariz. — Nearly nothing went right for Ohio State during Saturday night's Fiesta Bowl. The Buckeyes were blasted by Clemson, 31-0, as Urban Meyer was shutout for the first time in his career as a head coach. 

Following the game, Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett was asked about his future.

Barrett already graduated, but as a redshirt junior, he has one year of eligibility remaining. He could either return to the Buckeyes for a fifth year, enter the NFL Draft or play his final season elsewhere.

The Wichita Falls, Texas native hinted at one of those following the tough loss.

"My main focus was to focus on this year so I didn't really give it that much thought," Barrett said, "But it will be really hard for me to walk away when we just lost 31-0."
