"Initially not knowing what to expect while orchestrating the in-home and official visit schedules, I didn't want to confine myself into making a fall decision without having adequate time to process all the information," Barnes said.
"I'm feeling confident what I once thought would be a regular [April] signing period decision now will be an early signing period decision," he continued. "It has been humbling to see the support the six programs have shown me over the last year."
