"Miami has not offered yet but I think they may soon." If the Hurricanes were to offer would that change his commitment to the Tigers? "I would still be committed to Clemson," stated the prize recruit.

The 6-4, 285 pound prospect continues to follow the Tigers season closely. "I saw that they had a good game against Duke. They blew them out."

Barfield will have more time to think about college as Camden High lost in the first round of the playoffs last weekend. The powerful defender finished the season with 45 tackles, 6 sacks and 2 interceptions including one that he returned for a touchdown.

The Camden High standout plans to set official visits with the Tigers and several others over the coming weeks.

"I will go for an official visit to Clemson. I'm not sure when yet. Tennessee, Penn State, Rutgers and probably Miami will get the other visit. If Miami doesn't offer I will probably visit Tulane."

Barfield stated that he is in on target in the classroom to qualify. We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding defensive tackle from New Jersey, right up through signing day 2004.
