One of the top prospects on the Bull's board tells USFNation that he has scheduled an official visit with South Florida. Offensive tackle Ricky Barnum will be in Tampa on the weekend of January 25th .
"I talk with Coach (Wally) Burnham and we recently decided on a date for my visit."
Barnum says that USF originally offered him back in the spring and his interest in the Bulls picked up early in the fall when they got off to a hot start.
"My top 5 has been the same for a few weeks now." Adding, "In no order it's USF, Florida, West Virginia, Georgia and Georgia Tech."
Of the 5 schools listed only Georgia does not have a visit scheduled yet.
"My first visit will be on December 14th, and that's to Georgia Tech. I'm excited for all my visits, I've been waiting for my season to end so I could start taking them."
Barnum is considered one of the top O-linemen in the state and at 6-foot-4 260 pounds he could play either tackle or guard at the next level.
Two of Ricky's teammates have already committed to the Bulls, but he says that won't affect his decision.
"I already had interest in USF before they committed, I was offered in the Spring and they committed in the summer. I'm just slowing things down and looking at all my options right now."
Besides his visits, Ricky will be concentrating on his school work, he takes the SAT on December 8th and says school has been going well this year. Stick with USFNation as we follow Ricky through signing day.
Although the Bulls seemed to have lost momentum recently, they kicked it back into gear the past week with four commits. It's good to see high profile recruits still very much interested in USF. Ricky has a late visit set with the Bulls and that could be enough to keep the 3 star linemen close to home.
