Michael Barnett, of Dorchester (S.C.) Woodland, was one of the top competitors at the Atlanta Nike football recruit camp. Barnett has the ideal frame for a strong-side defensive end, at 6'4 and 245 pounds, with length to add more good size. He is a consensus four-star recruit, and decommitted from Virginia Tech in early February. I spoke with Barnett about his recruitment and the chance to compete at the Atlanta Nike.

"It's a great opportunity to show my skills. I hate losing, and I want to show my high motor," Barnett said.

Since decommitting from Virginia Tech, many big schools have been showing interest in Barnett.

"N.C. State, Florida, Florida State, Clemson and Georgia," Barnett said. "And Alabama is showing interest as well. It would be nice to have an offer from Oregon because of their uniforms, and I want to see their facility."

Several schools stick out to Barnett: N.C. Sate, Virginia Tech, FSU, UGA and Clemson.

Barnett is being recruited by coaches Elliot and Hoby from Clemson.
