Barnes brings athleticism and depth to defensive tackle spot

The departure of senior defensive tackles Jarvis Jenkins and Miguel Chavis and the dismissal of tackle Jamie Cumbie last June have left the Clemson defense in an unfamiliar position – a lack of depth in the middle of the defensive line. Full Story »

This is how you build a winner. Find kids that are smart, tough, strong and will run through a concrete wall for you.

That is what will keep him on the field. Attitude.

weigh 290+. 250 - 270 is too light to play inside, IMO, especially in shorter yardage situations.

an athletic DT who is simply a player can still command double teams because a lot of OG's have trouble with athletic DT's. athleticism with leverage is a big thing on the inside which is why a big guy with strength can be deadlocked by a smaller guy with athleticism and technique. this is why grady jarrett is going to surprise a lot people and probably not redshirt. he is 280 already and a state champion wrestler in GA. jarrett knows locks and throws and is country strong. jarrett is my pick to add depth from the freshman class and eventually prove to be a steal... but barnes is going to be fine at 275 for depth purposes but still has time to add more weight and improve our DL play overall for the future as he continues to bulk up.

I agree, Ive been saying all along that Grady Jarrett is

gonna be the biggest surprise of this 2011 class. He didn't deserve to be a 3 star, he just didn't have the breakout senior season in HS that he should've. I've actually talked to him via text message and he said that his senior season was plagued with minor injuries & illnesses, but have you seen his Junior stats? like 18 sacks and 20 or 30 some odd TFL.

Plus, it also helps being the nephew of Ray Lewis =)

i think dodd(if he qualifies) has the potential out of all

Williams, lost in the cycle becuase early local commit

I like his attitude. Should help the team. Defense should have plenty of playing time opportunities for younger players this year. It will be interesting how the competition plays out at each position.


I was excited when we landed Barnes over FSU last year

I believe if he gets up to 280-285 by at least october, He will be fine. Him and Grady Jarrett are gonna command the interior of our D-Line starting in a year or so, they're gonna be nasty.
