ATH Kwamelle Barnes Profile
Saluda High School's Kwamelle Barnes recently spoke with CUTigers about his camp experience in Tigertown.
"It went real well. I believe I improved on my speed and my skills. Hopefully, I can carry that to my season," he said.
Barnes split his time between the offensive and defensive lines.
"I thought it was good for me, because I'm going to be playing on both sides of the ball this year," he said. "That definitely improved my skills on both sides of the ball."
His future at the next level might be on the offensive side of the ball.
"Besides Clemson, other coaches from colleges came to the school [in May] saying they wanted to see me on the offensive line," Barnes said. "I'm thinking of playing offensive line in college…but I'll play any position in college."
The 6-foot-4, 280-pound prospect has visited Clemson several times, but this was his first camp in Tigertown. He was impressed with both Robbie Caldwell and Marion Hobby.
"Coach Hobby and coach Caldwell, both of them teach you valuable lessons, about being a precise player and doing all different things to be the best player that I can be," Barnes said.
Along with the Clemson camp, he camped at South Carolina and Florida.
As a sophomore, Barnes had 37 tackles, three sacks, seven tackles for loss and two recovered fumbles.
