Barham a key piece of loaded Pierce secondary

It's becoming pretty obvious that L.A. Pierce's secondary is loaded with talented prospects. CB Aldain Barham (5-11, 165) is one player who has shown D-1 abilities and because of that, he has talked to several four-year programs who are very interested in what he can do. JCFootball.com spoke to the talented DB recently and he updated us on where things stand...

Barham prepped at Campus Magnet (Cambria Heights, NY) High School and was recruited pretty heavily by some smaller football programs, but he was unable to qualify.

He redshirted a year at Nassau College in 2009, but decided a change of scenery was needed.

"I had a bunch of friends out here and one really close one (Gerald Bowman) said I should join him out here," Barham told JCFootball.com recently.

After a solid redshirt freshman season working in the rotation at corner, Barham said his work this offseason has him primed to show schools what he can do.

"I've got 4.4 speed legitimately, but I have clocked a 4.38 a couple of times," Barham said. "I have had a good offseason and spring. I am working on my strength and getting bigger, so I can show schools I can be more physical, but I was already pretty physical anyway."

Schools from all over flocked to Pierce this spring to take a look at a roster full of talented players and because of that, Barham and gotten some attention from some non-AQ FBS programs.

"New Mexico State likes me a lot," Barham said. "I'm also hearing from UTEP, Florida International and Western Michigan right now.

"I'm just looking for a place to get a good education and to play some ball. I also want to find a place that I can play early because of my situation with only two years of eligibility left."

Barham is on pace to graduate in December and he will have two years to play two.
