Missouri State offered 2016 point guard Jordan Barnes. The 5-foot-10, 150-pound guard has been hearing from several programs and holds offer from two schools.
“I have heard most from St. Louis, Missouri, Missouri State, Southern Illinois-Edwardsville, San Jose State and Xavier,” Barnes said. “I have gotten offered by SIU-E and Missouri State,” Barnes continued.
The offer from Missouri State was his first D-1 offer – a big milestone for any prospect. And Barnes feels good about what Missouri State has to offer.
“It felt really good to get the Missouri State offer. I felt like the coaches really made me feel at home. They really liked me as a player and a student,” he continued.
Barnes likes the style of coaching that Coach Lusk gives his guards and the way they are able to perform on the court.
“I like the Missouri State program. I like how Coach Lusk really pushes his point guard and how they really get up and guard,” he said.
Barnes, despite his size, describes himself as a guard who can not only score but stop his opponent.
“I think I’m a true point guard who can get his team into a set, run the show, and score when needed. And I can lockdown my opponent,” Barnes finished.
