Rob Lewis on Volquest is reporting that Deshaun Barnes of Tallahassee has committed to Tennessee. He and his teammate Tim Lamb (DT) announced tonight on ESPNU, I believe, and he picked the Big Orange. It's a surprise because Florida St. usually lock down recruits in that area.. Some posters on the Volquest board seem to think that he will switch commits after he visits FSU on Jan. 26. He visits us 2 weeks before that and LSU the week in between.
Here is some info. on him...
Deshaun Barnes - 6'2", 195, 4.4 Speed, Rated a 5.7 on Rivals Scale, Only 3 stars but has offers from Florida, FSU, LSU, Auburn, Clemson, and UCLA. Projects to be an outside linebacker in college, so his size and speed will fit perfectly into Chavis' style.
Don't know if this has been posted yet, but Gerald Williams was rated the #9 prep player in the nation, 4 stars, and is up to 6'4" 245. Once again, he was added to our commit list.
Brent Vinson was also added to the list, this time as a 5 star player, and the #2 prep player in the nation. It says he had over 400 yards against West Virginia's team.
