Focused on five

Michael Barnett has cut his list down, so is he nearing a decision? Five schools are high on his list and you can get the latest here...

Michael Barnett told Scout Tuesday that Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, and North Carolina State are his top five schools.

Yes, they are his top five, but he also said those are his "final five".

The 6-foot-5,245 pound defensive end out of Dorchester (S.C.) Woodland has five favorites, but he is not looking to commit anytime soon. "As of right now, it (Commitment) will be on signing day," said Barnett.

Out of his top five, he has visited Clemson, FSU, and N.C. State. He plans to return to Tallahassee, Fla. and Raleigh, N.C. this summer and a first trip to UGA is planned.

He'd also like to visit Baton Rouge, La. to see LSU for the first time.

The in-state school (N.C. State) is recruiting the 4-Star the hardest right now according to Barnett and the Wolfpack looks like the favorite with a little over eight months to go.

Barnett is the No. 30 defensive end and No. 246 overall prospect on Scout. Top Stories
