Barnett not indicating any change in thinking right now

April 23, 2014 

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.
