One of the best players in Air Force’s class might be one of the last to join. The Falcons got huge news when Reggie Barnes, a 6-2, 215-pound defensive end/tight end/receiver from Berkeley Prep in Tampa, Fla. said he would be coming to Air Force. The announcement came from a Twitter posting from the Berkeley football program.
According to Rivals.com, Barnes had offers from Arizona State, Cincinnati, Colorado State, Florida International, Pittsburgh, Presbyterian, Rice, VMI and Wofford. Devils Digest said Monday night that Barnes’ choices were down to Air Force, Arizona State and Cornell. Arizona State’s Rivals.com site pegged the Sun Devils as the favorite a little more than a week ago after his visit to the campus. He could be a fantastic rush linebacker for the Falcons, if he ends up at that position.
Here’s some junior year highlights of Barnes (I’ll put his senior highlights in the big post on all the recruits later today):
