The 6-6, 190-pound Paterson Catholic (N.J.) small forward put up 19.4 points per game and 7 rebounds this season. His athleticism and versatility are what sets his game apart.
``He's like ether," Playaz Basketball Club coach Jimmy Salmon said. "He's odorless and tasteless, but he has a deadly effect. He's so far under the radar that nobody knows about him. He's the most underrated player in the east."
Paterson Catholic (19-4) was upset a few days ago by Passaic in the county title game, but Barrett & Co. will get redemption in the state playoffs.
Barrett was born in Jamaica, but has lived most of his life in northern New Jersey. He's a 3.0 student who will look primarily at style of play when choosing a college.
``Georgia Tech," he said. "They play my kind of game, up and down."
