Quote:
DE Michael Barnett of Woodland took in Tuesday’s practice at USC and he left Columbia with the Gamecocks still outside his current top five.
“It was pretty good,” he said of the visit. “I was just looking at the football facilities. Can’t deny the fact that South Carolina is beautiful. But it (the visit) didn’t really do anything, didn’t change anything. They’re still outside the top five.
Barnett talked to recruiter Everette Sands along with defensive line coach Deke Adams and defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward while there. “They just want me to get back up there for a school day so they can show me the broadcasting school,” said Barnett who wants to major in broadcasting. “They said they are going to recruit me hard. Coach Adams and coach Sands said they will be at my spring practice.”
Barnett said he has no other visits planned right now but wants to get to Georgia over his spring break.
His top five remains NC State, North Carolina, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Florida State in no order. And he said he still has high interest in Clemson. He talked with the Tigers last week and hopes to visit there over the summer. Barnett, who once was committed to Virginia Tech, said he will not be making an early decision this time.

It's a shame that this young man doesn't seem interested in the home state school. Maybe he will change his mind about us.

To be fair, it was us that pulled away first. We had Rivers, Blackshear and Key committed, we thought we were done at recruiting DE's. Then Key and Rivers decommitted, so we tried to re-establish contact with him. I don't know if we'll be able to get back in his top 3, but there's time to do that if he gives us a chance.

There is time, but we would be fine missing on Barnett. We got 5* Blackshear and 4* Sawyer, and lead for: 4* Arden Key, 4* Marquavious Lewis, 3* Jack Gearon. We are also in 4* Clelin Ferrell top group.

Quote:
There has been no change in the top five for DE Michael Barnett of Woodland.
Barnett has named NC State, North Carolina, Georgia Tech, Florida State and Georgia in no order as his favorites. He is also showing interest in Clemson and said that the coaches have maintained contact with him.
“I talk to coach (Marion) Hobby,” he said. “He checks in on me. They just want to get me on campus. I’ll probably visit this summer.”
Barnett had considered visiting Georgia over his spring break but did not make the trip. He competes in track and field and said his team is preparing for the regional. With no definitive dates set for upcoming visits, expect Barnett to get busy this summer. “I want to enroll early so I would need to commit sometime before then,” he said.
Barnett did visit USC last month but acknowledged there is little going on between the Gamecocks and him.
He does not have a date set for an announcement nor does he have a leader.

I wonder why Virginia Tech is no longer being considered by him? Maybe Beamer has told players his exit date? Either way, hope we get him. Every single top notch recruit we let leave the Lowcountry has made it to the NFL - Green, Dunlap, Quinn, etc.

VaTech has some serious problems on offense. Their spring game was a couple of weeks ago and their offense didn't score. That makes me feel happy. Tech is to Va as taters are to SC.

Good. I'm glad he is disappointed. That is good news for our program. Shows that having guys like Clowney and Ingram are paying off for us to have so much interest at the DE position. But he has his offer now so it should be all good. You know what would be impressive? If he stops his pouting and goes right ahead and pulls the trigger. Would show maturity. He probably should go ahead and commit right away if he doesn't want to miss the boat.

I am extremely serious. One of the top players in the country from the the state of SC is upset that he is down a ways on our coaches list? That's not luxury we are used to around here. It's awesome.

Default Re: 2015 - Michael Barnett

We lose quite a few players from Georgia and Florida when the home state schools finally show up to the dance with an offer., usually when players higher on their boards commit elsewhere. Those players are not offended that their home state team offers late and in more cases than not, the player is so excited that the home state finally offered them. In fact the home state team then, almost always, becomes a factor in the players' recruitment.

Default Re: 2015 - Michael Barnett

There's a piece in the AJC right now on BAW. C&P from that article

Which school would you have considered more if they had offered earlier? “Definitely Georgia. They offered me on signing day last year (during my junior year). I felt like if they had offered me earlier, it could’ve been different. It would’ve been a way harder decision. Georgia and Alabama were two of my favorite schools going into the process. And I just felt like Georgia was offering out-of-state kids before the in-state kids


See any similarities?

I thought we already had several DEs committed so that's why we didn't go after Barnett hard.
