Ohio State 2013 commit J.T. Barrett (Wichita Falls, Texas/Rider) rarely needs to find motivation. Now, the ESPN 300 quarterback has discovered something to give him that extra drive.

Tom Hauck for ESPN.comSenior quarterback J.T. Barrett suffered what might be a significant knee injury in his team's last game.
Injured last week in a 44-17 win over Brewer, Barrett had to leave the game and didn't return. Barrett is the only quarterback in the 2013 recruiting class for the Buckeyes.

"Saturday, I went to the sports clinic here in town and got an MRI and they said I tore my ACL, my MCL and my meniscus," Barrett said. "I'm getting a second opinion on Wednesday, but I honestly don't think it's that bad. But like my coach [Jim Garfield] said, 'We expect the worst and hope for the best.'"
