Ohio State Overview: Joe Thomas "J.T." Barrett is one of the great quarterbacks in Ohio State history, and he'll absolutely be remembered as one of the best leaders in the history of the football program. The only three-time captain in school history, Barrett capped an outstanding four-year career with the Buckeyes by leading the team to its second Big Ten title in his four years as a starting quarterback in 2017 and to a Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic victory over USC in his home state of Texas. Barrett started 44 games in his Ohio State career and set the school record with 38 victories, including four wins over Michigan to become the first Ohio State quarterback in school history to start four wins over its rivals from the north. He was named the quarterback of the year in the Big Ten three times and the Chicago Tribune Silver Football award winner as the Big Ten's best player once. He set a total of 39 Ohio State (34) or Big Ten Conference (five) records, including some of the most prestigious for a quarterback, including:

  • Big Ten records for career total offensive yards (12,697), touchdown passes (104), touchdowns responsible for (147) and player of the week awards (nine);
  • Ohio State passing records for career completion percentage (63.5), touchdown passes (104), passing yards (9,434) and passing yards per game (188.7);
  • Ohio State career total offense records for most 200-, 300- and 400-yard games and for average total yards per game at 253.9; and
  • The Ohio State record for quarterback rushing yards (3,263), and his 43 touchdowns scored are fifth-most at Ohio State, trailing only Pete Johnson, Keith Byars, Eddie George and Ezekiel Elliott.

Barrett, a Top 10 vote-getter in the Heisman Trophy race twice, including finishing fifth in 2014, was responsible for 147 passing and rushing touchdowns to rank fourth in NCAA history in that category. He also ranked 17th in NCAA history in career rushing yards by a quarterback (and third among Big Ten quarterbacks) and he is one of two Division I quarterbacks to throw at least 100 TD passes and rush for at least 40 (Dan LeFevour of Central Michigan). Barrett is fourth in Big Ten history in passing efficiency, eighth in passing yards and 10th in completion percentage. He graduated in December 2016 with his degree in communications. He interned in Bristol, Conn., at ESPN, this past May along with receiver Parris Campbell, and he also travelled to Ecuador for a week following his ESPN work and helped deliver shoes to those in need as part of the Athletic Department's Soles 4 Souls program.

Honors & Awards
2017: East-West Shrine Game Pat Tillman Award recipient, Finalist for the Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award, Finalist for the Senior CLASS Award, Finalist for the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award, Big Ten's Griese-Brees Quarterback of the Year, First-team All-Big Ten (coaches & media)

Notable: Barrett not only is the Ohio State record holder for passing yards, but he also ranks seventh in school history in rushing yards, trailing only Archie Griffin, Ezekiel Elliott, Eddie George, Tim Spencer, Chris Wells and Braxton Miller.

More on J.T.: Barrett enrolled at Ohio State in January 2013 and spent the spring season working out, but not running, while recovering from his 2012 knee surgery. He was considered one of the nation's premier dual threat quarterbacks in the Class of 2013, although his senior season came to an early end with a knee injury in the fifth game of the season. He was rated as the No. 11 prospect in talent-rich Texas (247Sports) and a consensus four-star cornerback (ESPN, Rivals, Scout, 247Sports). He is the son of Stacy and Joe Barrett and he has two brothers: Xavier and Stephen.
