Buckeyes QB J.T. Barrett Loses His OSU Scholarship for the Semester

It wasn’t a good weekend for Buckeyes QB J.T. Barrett, who was arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OVI) at a checkpoint early on Saturday in Columbus.

Barrett has been suspended by the Buckeyes for Saturday’s home tilt with Minnesota, but that’s not the only punishment that the quarterback will face for his Saturday arrest.

Ben Axerlod tweets out that Barrett has lost his Ohio State scholarship for the semester.

Being from Texas, the punishment for Barrett is an expensive one, as out-of-state tuition at Ohio State is costly, try more than $27,000 per year.

UPDATE: Axerlod tweeted out a few moments ago that Barrett will lose his summer aid, not his current scholarship, but it will still be costly for the quarterback in the long run.
