Top Recruit Barnes Narrows List to Six – UCLA is in

The mother of Ames, Iowa, basketball star Harrison Barnes says he has narrowed his list of potential college choices to six schools.
Shirley Barnes says her son, considered by many the top basketball player in the Class of 2010, is considering North Carolina, Duke, Kansas, Oklahoma, UCLA and Iowa State.
She says Barnes will make an official visit to North Carolina on the first weekend of
September and to Duke the weekend of Oct. 23.
Barnes’ visits to Kansas, Oklahoma and UCLA are still being arranged. Barnes, a senior at Ames High, won’t make an official visit to Iowa State since he lives just a mile from
Shirley Barnes also says she doesn’t believe her son will make a decision before the early
signing period ends in November.

    Good to hear. I have been looking for updates on basketball recruiting. Barnes would be huge.

    I am not holding my breath. I would be SHOCKED if he decided to come to UCLA. Too far from home, especially when there are so many other “top” b-ball programs in the mix.

    Is there any particular reason UCLA is mentioned 2nd to last on that list?

    @Uclabru1: Yes, the Bruins are currently second behind Iowa State. šŸ™‚
