"I just go out there and try and run good patterns," Barrett said. "I catch everything that is thrown my way. I try and make something happen. I want to go out there and make a play and make people miss. My mission is to find that endzone.

"Defensively, I play cornerback and like to call it pay back for what they try and do to me as a wide receiver. I am more motivated on defense. But I prefer to play offense because I want the ball."

According to Barrett, he has scholarship offers from Marshall, West Virginia, Syracuse and Duke.

"My two leaders are Ohio State and Michigan. I just have always liked those teams. When they play against each other, I root for Ohio State. I also like Florida, Miami and Notre Dame. Right now, I prefer to leave the state and start fresh and try and do something different."
