Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett is still working his way back into the offensive mix this spring as he recovers from his broken ankle injury at the end of the 2014 season. With the defending national champions now in the midst of spring practices, Barrett has been limited but has not missed any reps in 7-on-7 drills.
Per Cleveland.com, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said today Barrett seems to be bouncing back faster than anticipated, which is surely good news to the ears of Buckeye fans. Of course, Barrett’s health is just one ingredient in the complicated quarterback situation in Columbus this spring. Meyer knows there will come a time when he needs to make a decision on which quarterback will be named the starter for Ohio State’s 2015 season opener at Virginia Tech, but the good news is this is not a decision that needs to be made any time too soon.
Cardale Jones is the only quarterback without limitations this spring. Braxton Miller is also throwing in practices this spring for Ohio State after missing last season due to a late offseason shoulder surgery. Meyer said it is a decision he is not looking forward to make when the time comes. Who could blame him really, although there may be no truly wrong answer when he does make the call.
