Barbour Considers Spring Options

Brian Barbour, a 6-0 senior point guard from Northern California, is considering several schools from across the country...

Brian Barbour, 6-0 SR PG Spring Valley (Calif.) Monte Vista, was a bit under the radar prior to his senior year. But after an impressive season, Barbour has a variety of schools showing interest in him.

"The most active ones have been St. Mary's, San Diego, UC Santa Barbara, Columbia, William & Mary and Hartford," said Barbour.

Barbour took an unofficial visit to San Diego this past weekend.

"I'm probably going to take official visits to Columbia, St. Mary's and San Diego," said Barbour.

Barbour talked a little about the factors he'll look at when picking a school.

"The number one thing is my relationship with the coaching staff," said Barbour. "Just being on good terms with them, since I'll be with them for four, or five years, if I redshirt. The location isn't a big deal -- I'm more interested in the academics than the location."

Barbour said he's not sure about the timing of his decision.

"I haven't really been thinking about it too much -- we still have the playoffs," said Barbour. "It'll probably be a few weeks after the season."

Barbour said he doesn't have a leader.

"I haven't visiting any schools yet officially," said Barbour. "But I do talk with most of them on a weekly basis."

Barbour said he has a 3.8 GPA.
