Freddie informed us last night that things have been going much better the past few games and he even received his first scholarship offer.
"I received a scholarship offer from Eastern Michigan," said the 6-foot-1, 185-pound Barnes.
"My favorites are Northwestern, Indiana, Bowling Green, Miami (Ohio) and Eastern Michigan. I'm working on setting up with an official visit with Eastern Michigan."
"I camped at Kentucky and Northwestern this summer," Barnes said. "I really like Northwestern a lot. Their offense is suited for my game and we're putting a lot of their offense in at my high school this year.
"I also like Kentucky. Another school that's high on my list is Indiana. Indiana is rebuilding right now but they should be on track by the time I get there.
"As a team, we're just not throwing the ball as much this year as we did last year," Barnes said.
"When we do throw the ball, we're having a hard time holding onto it. I've had three touchdown passes dropped on me in the end zone. We're getting better though. Our goal is to make the play-offs."
