C.J. Barber of Northwestern (SC) is receiving a lot of interest these days. He does have offers, but his head coach Jimmy Wallace would like for Barber to keep those to himself for now. Clemson, South Carolina, Tennessee, Michigan, NCSU, and Florida are very possible destinations for Barber.
"I want to play as a true freshman, but if I have to I'll red-shirt. I'm looking at the coaching staffs, academics, defensive schemes, and the business school ranking."
Barber is close-friends with Lamont Williams Rock Hill (SC) and Jonathan Joseph Coffeyville Community College (KA). Is there any talk of the three signing with same college?
"We (Williams) have never sat down and talked about going to the same school, I'm sure we will. Me and Jonathan have talked about it a lot."
Barber plans to take all of his five visits and will make his decision public close to Signing Day. He projects as a full qualifier.
Barber spoke about his experience at the South Carolina football camp.
"I had fun. It was a pretty good learning experience. I got to know the coaching staff even better."
Barber has made plans to attend the Florida camp on July 12th.
