Video: Future Dawg Chris Barnes
One of the four basketball signees for Georgia class of 2007 is forward Chris Barnes. Barnes chose the Dawgs over Kentucky, Oklahoma, and others in the fall before signing with UGA in November. UGASports.com traveled over to Mt. Zion to see Barnes in action. He had to battle through double teams all night, but he is still a major force down low. Check out this exclusive video.
Prospect: Chris Barnes
High School: Riverdale (Riverdale, Ga.)
Position: Power Forward
Vitals: 6-8, 240-pounds
Offers: Georgia, Oklahoma, Kentucky, and others.
Favorites: Signed with Georgia in November.
The Skinny: Barnes is a very long 6-foot-8 forward that blocks a lot of shots, throws down many dunks, and has nice touch inside 18-feet. He runs the court very well and he cleans up the boards most nights. He has a very nice frame that allows him to bang down low in the post as well. Barnes will likely play the four (power forward) position for Coach Felton in Athens.
UGASports.com traveled to Mt. Zion High School in January to see Barnes in action and he had to battle double and triple teams all night. He still scored in double digits, showed his ability to run the floor, and he made his presence known on the defensive end.
