While in town, the Lee County [Leesburg, Ga.] sophomore caught up with recruiter of record Danny Pearman and offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell.

"It was all right. It was like a normal spring game. It was all right, it was pretty good," Barnes said.

What did Caldwell have to say?

"Coach Caldwell just told me to keep working hard. He said to keep working on the field and everything will work out for itself," Barnes said.

How about Pearman?

"Coach Pearman, me and him have got a pretty good relationship already. We joke and laugh, just having a good time joking around. He likes my feet and just to keep working. That's all he was saying."

Saturday was his third visit to Clemson. Barnes attended last year's spring game and was back in the fall for the Boston College game.

"I love what I'm seeing on campus…the stadium, the coaches and how they're talking to me," he said. "There's a lot. I just like it up there. It's really nice, beautiful, beautiful."

He was in Auburn on Saturday for their spring game.

The visits will pick back up in the summer.

"I'm going to come up to [Clemson's] camp, of course. Auburn, Georgia camp, Florida State camp and South Carolina's camp, so I'm going to see all those," Barnes said. Top Stories
