I've never seen him. His stats for the Eagles are similar to Reynolds and Roby for their AAU teams. Now those 3 are all different so I'm not saying that means much, but between that and what I've been able to read, I think he's a fringe A10 player. We wouldn't need him until his junior year (hopefully) so I'd take a shot on him. Between helping our changes at Tatum and strengthening our relationship with the Eagles, I think it's worth it.
Also, something to keep in mind no matter what your opinion on Barnes, just because we offer doesn't mean we'll get him.
Good point. It's one thing to go sit on the bench in the Big 10. Kids come to SLU to play. Whether you consider them "true" point guards or not, we already have 3 guys auditioning for the point guard position. Barnes isn't a clear upgrade over any of them. Who wants to ride the pine at SLU just to be a backup point guard in 2 years?
