2016 Intro: Ronnie Barfield

The Chauncey Billups Elite program enjoyed success with unheralded and underrated forward Ronnie Harrell a year ago, and now Billups Elite hopes to push a few more guys to the high-major college level.

Ronnie Barfield ranks among the prospects to watch. The 6-3 sophomore guard doesn't string together spectacular plays and is far from complete, but he's a quick and aggressive driver who makes good things happen at the rim.

Barfield carries a solid frame and should develop into a power guard as he matures naturally. He's most comfortable attacking off the bounce and appears to be a solid finisher. His jump shot stands as a key for him to address, but his form doesn't look bad.

This piece isn't intended to hype Barfield as a high-major prospect, at least not yet, but he was a key cog for Billups' 16-under squad last weekend and helped lead them to the championship at the Jayhawk Invitational.

His recruitment has yet to take off, but that's likely to change over the course of the summer.

"It's just Denver recruiting me right now," Barfield said. "There's no offer yet."

Clearly, Barfield understands that he has a long way to go if he hopes to compile widespread interest.

"Basically, I know I need to work on my jump shot and just keep getting to the basket," he said.
