Barnes has a definite plan for the summer months heading into his senior season.
"My plans this year are to go to as many colleges that I prefer so I can get a better view before I just up and come up with a college that I want to go to. I really have no top schools right now, and it all depends on how the schools do their jobs correctly and honestly."
With the South Carolina Gamecocks already having teammate, and highly regarded corner back Gary Gray in the fold for '07, the recruiting by Gray has already begun.
"Gary Gray and not only him, but Quintin Richardson are both trying very hard. Gary is just the top recruiter right now I think out of everything. I can't even be around him without hearing what they can do if I was to go there with him and things like that. I guess that's what it is about when you commit early."
