DL Deion Barnes (6-4 230) of Philadelphia plans to narrow his list to four or five by the beginning of the season.
He says winning is very important in recruiting him. "I am going to look at the other players schools are recruiting because I want to play with other good players," said Barnes. "Winning is important to me and I want to win championships wherever I go."
Barnes attended a 7 on 7 camp earlier this summer at USC and says they are a school he could look at. "They play in the SEC and that interests me," he said.
Barnes has been idle for much of the summer and is not sure he will take any visits going forward. "I'm more focused on the upcoming season right now," he said. He does not have any favorites. Some of his other offers are Penn State, Maryland, Michigan, Virginia, West Virginia and Georgia.
