Two Offers for Lake Gibson Lineman
"I have offers from Virginia Tech and USF (South Florida)," Ricky Barnum said. "I am also hearing from Auburn, Indiana and Colorado." "I am visiting Auburn this coming up weekend (March 10) and Virginia Tech on the 17th for spring break." "All my schools are pretty much even, but I would say Virginia Tech and USF are on top." Barnum described his style of play, "I am just a hard-worker. I do anything I can to win." The big offensive lineman talked about his favorites, "I really don't want to stay in Florida, but if it is God's will for me to stay in Florida then I will." "Virginia Tech was the first to offer me. I almost committed, but my coach told me not to jump into anything--there would be plenty more offers to come around. Two weeks after Tech offered me USF called and offered. Auburn is real close to offering too." Virginia Tech: "I like them because there are people like Torrian Gray. He is a cool person, and he has been to the NFL before. He is from Lakeland, and him and my dad are real cool. I didn't know he knew my dad, but when they were talking they said they used to play football together when they were younger. Auburn: "They are all right, but it is probably not where I want to go." South Florida: "That might be the place for me. I really like them. I have a lot of friends over there." Barnum said he will make his college decision sometime during his senior season.
