Profile 2004 - Brandon Barrett (WR)

Brandon Barrett will be one of the nation's most sought after wide receiver prospects this season. He plays for Martinsburg High School in West Virginia.

Brandon Barrett is a super prospect from the state of West Virginia. Barrett, 6-1 and 180 pounds, is a two-way star for Martinsburg High School. Last season as a junior, Barrett caught 71 passes for 1,350 yards and 26 touchdowns. As a cornerback, he intercepted 13 passes and returned five of those for touchdowns. He is also a standout kick returner. "I just go out there and try and run good patterns," Barrett said. "I catch everything that is thrown my way. I try and make something happen. I want to go out there and make a play and make people miss. My mission is to find that endzone.

"Defensively, I play cornerback and like to call it pay back for what they try and do to me as a wide receiver. I am more motivated on defense. But I prefer to play offense because I want the ball."

According to Barrett, he has scholarship offers from Marshall, West Virginia, Syracuse and Duke.

"My two leaders are Ohio State and Michigan. I just have always liked those teams. When they play against each other, I root for Ohio State. I also like Florida, Miami and Notre Dame. Right now, I prefer to leave the state and start fresh and try and do something different."
