Three Star DE Gets Duke Offer

Philadelphia, Pa., native Deion Barnes picked up two more offers from Duke and Purdue this week and is going to visit the schools if he can get a ride.

"Duke and Purdue offered me this week," Deion Barnes said. "Duke came by the school a little while back and offered me, but I don't know much about their team. Purdue said they really want me a lot and I know Anthony Spencer and Shaun Phillips both came from there who are really good NFL players. It's funny because both coaches had ties to Philly which was cool."

"I'm going to look into visiting the schools if I can get into them. I've been getting to a lot of schools with big groups of people who all go down together in vans, so it's all about what schools they're going to. I don't really have a choice where I go, it's just where I can get a ride to and when."

As a junior, Barnes registered 64 tackles, 25 tackles for loss, eight sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery for a touchdown and one blocked field goal from his defensive end position. As a tight end, he caught 11 passes for 192 yards and four touchdowns. He was named firs
