Two-thirds of's Ohio State beat reporting team is currently in Wichita Falls, Texas, the home of J.T. Barrett. 

Ari Wasserman and Bill Landis are on a journey through the South that should produce some awesome Buckeye-themed tales. Wednesday, the first day of the trip, is being spent at S. H. Rider High School, where the Buckeyes' redshirt freshman quarterback became the recruit that would commit to Urban Meyer and Ohio State. 

Barrett's accomplishments in Columbus - there are many - have been honored by his high school in the form of some big wall posters. Check them out: 

Will Barrett be Ohio State's starter come September? He told Sports Illustrated's Pete Thamel that he expects himself, Cardale Jones and Braxton Miller to all return to Columbus for another season. If that happens, Meyer will have quite a quarterback competition on his hands.
