Harrison Barnes Still Undecided
Apparently as of yesterday, Harrison Barnes was still undecided as to which college he will attend next year. The No. 1 recruit in the class of 2010 even said that all six schools on his short list (North Carolina, Duke, Kansas, Iowa State, UCLA and Oklahoma) were still in the running, giving his hometown Iowa State a fading bright spot.
I don’t buy that. It’s been pretty well-documented that Barnes is likely down to two schools in the Research Triangle Area. What’s that, Kansas and Oklahoma? Never heard of the Triangle? That’s OK, it’s an area right on the border of YOUR two states. Promise.
If he’s still undecided, which might not be true if he’s just being PC, I’m obviously hoping he’s leaning heavily in the direction of Chapel Hill. His arrival on either campus could have national championship implications in 2011, and I don’t know if my brain could handle another one in Durham.
Let’s hope this Friday the 13th is our lucky charm.
