Shukree Barfield (DL - 6'4", 290lbs, 4.9 forty) from Camden HS in Camden, New Jersey is one of the top DL prospects in the state of New Jersey. His size, quickness, speed, and athleticism has caught the attention of Penn State, Tennessee, and Kentucky.
One of my former teammates coached for one of the better teams in South Jersey. His team had potentially two Division IA prospects on the offensive line. Barfield gave them all that they could handle and more.
