    Barnes down to 12

    I don't think this is very shocking or anything, but Scout says Barnes cut his list down to 12 schools (link):

    • Duke
    • Florida
    • ISU
    • Kansas
    • Kentucky
    • Minnesota
    • North Carolina
    • Oklahoma
    • Stanford
    • TCU
    • UCLA
    • USC

    I'm not sure if these teams ever had much of a chance anyway, but basically, he officially cut Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Louisville, Maryland, Tennessee, and Texas, among others.

    Re: Barnes down to 12

    i wish i was more optimistic. but i really think we have a slim chance for him to come here, especially if brackins will leave after the next year (which will probably happen)

    either way, at least we are in the top 12.

    That list doesn't match the list of 12 he gave in another interview, so I guess it's down to like 12, but a couple more.

    Re: Barnes down to 12

    On that list it shows no offers from Minnesota, TCU, Oklahoma and Stanford as well.......I think those 4 schools are out, l so Iowa State is in the final 8 with Duke, North Carolina, Florida, Kansas, Kentucky and USC and UCLA............

    And all those schools are now medium interest and there is no school with high interest.......

    Re: Barnes down to 12

    I think Brackins staying next year helps, and advances the program by at least a year on it's path to return to national prominence.

    I feel pretty good that we will be on his short list, and will be one of the final contenders.

    It can't hurt to have Brackins stay even if they don't play together, it should show HB that CB believes ISU can win.

    Tee-Hee, no Iowa. But then again, their program is starting to make Waldorf look like world beaters.

    I know Iowa lost a lot of guys due to transfers, but they kicked our *** this year. I'll just wait on making fun of them till we actually whoop them up good!

    Re: Barnes down to 12

    Thats funny because I sent an article to scout last night telling them that I have made my decision on where I want Barnes to go to.

    Iowa State

    I still say he sets up a website and have a mascot showdown with the top 12 he has chosen. He would definitely be staying in Ames then. haha

    Re: Barnes down to 12

    Duke, North Carolina, ISU, Kansas, and USC are more than likely his final 5 schools. I am so sad that I cant watch Harrison this weekend in Lawrence. Why do I have to pick a weekend to go away when Harrison visits my backyard?

    Re: Barnes down to 12

    TCU did in fact offer in him and the only reason he still lists them is b/c he loves Coach Pri. If we would have kept Coach Pri on as an assistant, Barnes would have committed to Iowa State by now

    Watching high school recruits play AAU ball is creepy anyway.

    Doesn't Scout just guess what schools he is considering. I kind of doubt Harrision has said that these are his final 12.

    I'm pretty sure Harrison did say this, actually. Scout wouldn't go change it arbitrarily, then go put it in their insider updates as being updated information.

    Also, and I think this might be a little more arbitrary, Scout lists Duke, UNC, and KU as High interest, and the other 9 as medium interest.
