Illinois quarterback <b>Freddie Barnes</b> will see plenty of Iowa City this spring and it all…
Junior QB Is A Big Time Talent
Barnes is a very good athlete that has a strong arm and he looks extremely poised in the pocket. There's no doubt that he'll be one of the most highly recruited prospects in 2004.
"Freddie is a tremendous athlete," said Homewood-Flossmoor Head Coach Tom Bailey.
"Freddie is starting to relax now and he's making good decisions. Although he can burn a defense with his speed, he's a quarterback that's patient and he's looking to throw the ball first."
Barnes has outstanding arm strength, he's disciplined and he's a playmaker. Which schools have been in contact with this super junior?
"Right now I'm hearing from Illinois and Notre Dame, that's about it." Barnes said.
"I'm getting a lot of letters but Illinois and Notre Dame have been sending the personal letters.
"I like Illinois, Notre Dame and Iowa. I'm also looking at Nebraska pretty hard. Three other schools that I'd like to take a look at are Virginia Tech, Indiana and Air Force."
Barnes threw for 975 yards passing and seven touchdowns in 2002. He also had 535 yards rushing.
