"Coach (Paul) Dunn let me sit in on one of their offensive line meetings. That was really great. Coach Dunn was nice to do that."
Barclay has visited Pitt on four different occasions and he attended the Scout.com All-American combine in Pittsburgh, PA. He has been a two-year starter at offensive tackle. Donny was responsible for protecting the blind side of 2006 Pitt quarterback recruit Kevan Smith.
"I spoke with Coach (Dave) Wannstedt, Coach (Greg) Gatusso and Coach (Junko). They basically told me that they are in the process of narrowing down their list to about 15 offensive linemen that they want. It looks like I'm going to be on the list. I like Pitt and hope they offer."
Barclay is capable of bench pressing 310 pounds, squatting 450 pounds and running a 5.1 forty-yard dash. He is known for his excellent footwork and technique.
"Most schools want me to play offensive tackle. I believe that Pitt wants to play me at tackle as well. I'm 6-foot-5 inches and I can add a lot more muscle to my frame. A few schools prefer me to play guard."
"It would be nice to play with Kevan (Smith). He told me he's going to talk to the staff about me. Hopefully I'll be guarding his blindside again."
