COLUMBUS, Ohio - There had been an uneasy feeling around Columbus (Ohio) as Braxton Miller never received a full green light for practice despite claiming he was 100-percent. On Monday night the greatest fears of Buckeyes fans were realized when reports came out that Miller re-injured his surgically repaired shoulder at practice and the prognosis was anything but good.
The next man up in J.T. Barrett, a quarterback who has not played a down of football in a contested game since the 2012 season when he was a prep player at Rider high school in Wichita Falls (Texas). Barrett lost most of his senior season of high school to a torn ACL and did not play in 2013, his true freshman season.
We have seen bits and pieces of Barrett through his time in Columbus and have limited tape from high school due to missing a high number of games as a senior but what does Barrett bring to the table as the Buckeyes appear ready to hand the keys to the car over to the redshirt freshman? We take a look at some of the things he does well and some of the thing that he needs to improve on.
