Barnes earned plenty of honors this season in helping the OCS Saints to the Class 2A state championship game where he scored two receiving touchdowns and also made a key fourth quarter interception on the field at Boone Pickens Stadium.
On the season, the 6-3, 205-pound Barnes caught 63 passes for 1,289 yards with a whopping 24 touchdown receptions. Barnes also had five interceptions on defense. As a junior for the Saints, he had 40 catches for 521 yards and five touchdowns. On defense he had 74 tackles with four interceptions, a sack, a fumble caused, and a fumble recovered.
Barnes' mother attended OSU and he has a sister currently attending OSU. He could easily play on offense or defense.
Later in the week, Flower Mound all-purpose player Matt Hirst will be checking out Oklahoma State. The 6-4, 210-pound Hirst has played wide receiver, outside linebacker, and quarterback in his prep career.
Hirst finished out playing quarterback last season, completing 41-of-78 passing for 461 yards with three touchdowns and just a single interception. He also rushed for 178 yards and two touchdowns.
Hirst caught plenty of passes earlier in his career and is also a possibility for defense.
