After the smoke cleared and everyone weighed in, the final analysis coming out of the NBA Camp was that Korvotney Barber made a huge impression on everyone. Barber, a 6-foot-7 power forward out of Manchester, Ga., High entered the event as our No. 74 prospect. Looks like we've got him too low.
If you are into comparisons, then Barber conjures up images of another former Peach State standout--Donnell Harvey. "People tell me that a lot," Barber said.
Each prospect in our Top 100 has a gift. Barber has been blessed with the talent of explosiveness. Around the basket he impacts the game because of his leaping ability and rise. Others will be bigger in size, but his springs and explosiveness allow him to grab rebounds, cover ground on defense and act bigger than he really is.
"Most defenders think they can guard me because I'm not too big, but I'm quick," Barber says. He'll get no arguments here.
Barber took the SAT two weeks ago and is awaiting the results. Meanwhile, he's pondering offers from Auburn, Connecticut, Georgia Tech, Georgia, and Tennessee, Arizona, Oklahoma, Miami, South Carolina and UAB.
Barber talks to the head coaches frequently from Georgia Tech, Auburn and Georgia. He's been to all three campuses.vo
