Quarterback J.T. Barrett (Wichita Falls, Texas/Rider) found everything he wanted in the Ohio State Buckeyes. Between coach Urban Meyer, offensive coordinator Tom Herman and the rest of the staff, Barrett said he felt right at home within the family atmosphere and could see Meyer serving as a father figure away from home. The success Meyer quarterbacks have had in the college and professional ranks didn't hurt in his recruitment either.

"With the quarterbacks he has, he puts plays in that they are good at," Barrett said of Meyer. "He puts his quarterbacks in the best position to succeed and the offense is going to be very productive because of that. He had some of the top offenses in the nation at Utah and Florida."

It's probably a good thing that the fit into the offense won't be a stretch for Barrett, because off the field, things might be a little trickier.
