Scout.com two-star running back Dexter Barnett is one of the hottest prospects in the Peach State and his stock is rising.
"I've got a couple more offers from Western Kentucky and UAB," said Barnett.
The University of Alabama at Birmingham offer was a big one for Barnett. The Blazers instantly became one of his top schools. Barnett will be using his second official visit in Birmingham this weekend.
"I'm actually going on a visit to UAB tomorrow," he said. "I'm going to check the place out and see what their athletic facility and their campus is like. Coach (Corey) Barlow is recruiting me for UAB. I'm really going to take a close look at the coaching staff. I would like to meet Head Coach (Neil) Callaway. I want to get an idea of what kind of offense they run. I want to check on a couple of academic programs as well."
Barnett's first official visit was to Miami (Ohio) a few weeks ago. He committed to Miami (Ohio) back in September only to decommit a month later.
"It was a great place," said Barnett. "I had a great time. They're still very interested in me. I get along great with their coaching staff. I could definitely see me fitting in there."
Vanderbilt became the first to offer the 5-foot-10, 172 pounder. Since then, Akron, East Carolina, Miami (Ohio), Indiana, Bowling green, Ball State, Central Florida, Western Kentucky and UAB have all offered.
He has narrowed his list down to three favorites.
"My three favorites are Memphis, UAB and Miami (Ohio)," Barnett said.
Barnett is planning on taking at least one more official visit before making a decision.
"On January 19th, I'm going to Memphis for an official," he said.
