Despite having grown up a basketball player and not playing football until his junior season, Barnett put his name on the recruiting map with a strong junior season for the Tigers. He finished the season with 30 tackles and one sack. Expect him to take his game to a whole new level this season, with an extra year of quality coaching under his belt.
Barnett, who could play defensive end or outside linebacker at the college level, has been to a few camps this summer and is starting to get some recruiting attention.
Barnett, who won the Defensive Line MVP Award at one of Miami's camps last month, talked about what he'll be looking for in a school down the road.
"A future, a great experience, and an excellent athletic and academic program," he said.
Barnett, 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds, claims a 3.1 GPA in the classroom and a 17 ACT score.
As he begins his senior season a lot of eyes from college coaches will be on him so he's definitely a player to keep a close eye on.
