    Harrison Barnes recruiting thread

    As Watzone said a couple days ago another Duke prospect from the 2010 class would be offered very soon. Well today scout.com is reporting that we have offered Harrison Barnes a 6'6 SF from Iowa.

    Barnes has been getting rave reviews for a few months on a Wisconsin website, and is supposed to have a good head on his shoulders. UW apparently is staying involved with him even though they have committed all their scholarships through 2010. Jamil Wilson, OTOH, is having some questions raised about him on that board re: collegiality, playing hard all the time, an underwhelming summer so far. UW apparently is no longer involved with him.

    Where are you getting this? I have heard nothing about such a kid and scout.com doesn't seem to even have him listed as a prospect for 2010...

    Can we get a link or something?

    He's from Ames, Iowa (the home of Iowa St.). He's a 2/3 prospect in the 2010 class, who through his play in the past few months has gone from being a top 75 prospect to a top 10-20 prospect.

    From a Duke perspective, he's got the athleticism that you would look for in an elite wing, an above-average mid-range shot, the ability to consistently take his defender off of the dribble, enough lateral quickness to guard ACC 2/3s, and is articulate. At 16, Barnes is currently a legitimate 6'5." With the way Duke uses their 3s, you'd like to see him add more consistency to his perimeter shot.

    Super long scout link (Req. subscription to read article) I don't subscribe either, so I can't see that the "ACC school" is Duke either....

    Looks great, but definitely out of the blue. How many scholarships can we offer for 2010, assuming no one leaves early? Seems that we have a couple of other offers outstanding.

    Right now, we can get 3 for 2009 if no one leaves early. If we give three scholarships to '09 players, then we have five spots for 2010 players (more if anyone from '07, '08, or '09 leaves early). One of those 2010 spots of course is already taken by Andre Dawkins. If Hairston and Barnes both also commit, that leaves two more spots, with Brandon Knight (top pg) and Josh Smith (#2 center) looking like top candidates at the moment.

    Obviously, rankings of 16-year-olds who are still 2-3 years away from college are subject to massive fluctuation (anyone recall when Derrick Character was the #1 player in his class -- by a lot!!)...

    But, that said, Harrison Barnes is currently the #6 player in the 2010 class according to Rivals and appears to be the #3 player in the 2010 class according to Scout (Scout does position rankings and ranks Barnes as the #1 SF so he may not technically be #3).

    So, uhhh, he's a big time recruit

    Interesting, Duke is not listed in the "Schools in the Running"

    I'm guessing that's because Duke is just coming on to his radar now. I'm sure his updated list will include Duke.

    Don't look to much into rivals or scout until they update the recruits info.

    The offer is fresh, as in just "officially" made in the past week. Coach K really liked what he saw during the camps last week. Barnes is a very impressive Duke type kid that half the nation is chasing.

    How often do they do that.

  17. #17
    Like usually when a big tournament comes up and the player tells the schools hes intrested in. Or when they are close to a decision and announce the final schools.

    There's been quite a bit of talk that it will be hard to get him out of Ames (location of Iowa State). Supposedly a great kid.

    I have seen quotes from his recently in articles saying that he wants to play for a team that will contend, a coach that will make him better, and a school that will set him up academically to succeed after basketball.
