When Derick Barkum committed to Arizona he knew getting enrolled might be tough. He had to get a lot of cousework done over the summer. He soon learned just getting the grades was not enough. After a paperwork delay, the JC WR is now practicing with the team.

Derick Barkum is not an easy guy to get a hold of. Word of his pledge to Arizona surfaced over a week ago. It took nearly 10 call attempts to finally reach him. It was worth it as the JC receiver was a good interview. Barkum wasn't just hard to get a hold of, he was not the easiest player to find during recruiting.

One of the best JC wideouts on the west coast is a name that might not be too familiar with people who follow recruiting, but he's made enough of a name for himself to get some scholarship offers and some other D-1 possibilities. San Diego Mesa WR Derick Barkum (6-2, 190) is scheduled to visit Portland State this weekend and he could trip to a D-1 school very soon as well.
