"I've been hearing from a lot of schools," Barney said. "I've got offers from Coastal Carolina, SC State, Morgan State, Winston Salem State, and Georgia Southern. I've been in contact with Appalachian State also. They haven't offered me yet, but they want me to schedule a visit with them. So, it's been going really well."
Barney has already taken a trip down to Statesboro, GA. to check on one of the SoCon's finest. "It was real nice," Barney said in regards to his visit to Georgia Southern University. "It seems like everybody from their town comes to the football games. Their fans are really into football, and I really like that. It's a little stadium, but it's real noisy.
Next month will be very eventful for Barney to say the very least. He will be busy checking out most of the programs that have already extended him offers. Barney gave SCPrepNation.com a rundown of his hectic schedule for the next few weeks. "I have a lot of visits scheduled for the month coming up (January)," Barney said. "I go to Coastal Carolina on the 12th, Appalachian State on the 18th, Morgan State on the 26th and South Carolina State on the 2nd of February."
Barney does not have a favorite as of yet. He's simply taking his time in terms of choosing a school because he wants to make sure he finds the perfect fit for him. He will continue taking his visit and will make a decision whenever he feels comfortable.
