Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett announced Wednesday that he will be returning to the Buckeyes for his final season.


J.T. Barrett said after the loss to Clemson in the College Football Playoff that it would be difficult to leave Ohio State on such a bad note.

He’ll get a chance to make better memories next season.

Barrett announced Wednesday via Instagram and Twitter that he has decided to play his redshirt senior season at Ohio State.

Barrett was named the Big Ten Quarterback of the Year as a redshirt freshman in 2014, but was hurt prior to the College Football Playoff as Ohio State went on to win the national championship. Barrett won the award again this season, throwing for 24 touchdowns and rushing for nine more.

But Barrett threw two interceptions and finished with minus-2 rushing yards in the Buckeyes’ 31-0 loss to Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl. He completed only 50.6 percent of his passes with one touchdown and three picks over Ohio State’s last three games, further submarining a draft stock that wasn’t all that high to begin with.

Barrett’s return will be a major coup for the Buckeyes, though. Ohio State still is awaiting a decision from standout athlete Curtis Samuel regarding his future, but running back Mike Weber will rejoin Barrett in the backfield next season as the Buckeyes look to make another CFP run.

Ohio State has already lost three early entrants to the NFL draft. Defensive backs Malik Hooker and Gereon Conley, along with linebacker Raekwon McMillan, have foregone their remaining eligibility to turn pro.
