Harrison Barnes (UNC)

6'8" 225
Small Forward
North Carolina (2010)






Ranked a consensus top 2 player in the current senior class. Going to North Carolina to play for Roy Williams. Very skilled, athletic wing who plays very under control. Reminds me of Evan Turner, but likely only going to college for one season.


Currently playing on ESPN2 for those who want to watch.

Re: Harrison Barnes

woooooooo can't wait for HB to come play for the Heels, just the kind of player we need, a good do it all player, can shoot, can break down a defense off the dribble, passes, rebounds, defends. Not only that but it's obvious that he has been very well coached, great fundamentals on his shot, a really beautiful consistent release, patient scoring near the basket, plays hard but like you said, under control and with great balance.

Unfortunately I will have graduated by the time he comes around.

Re: Harrison Barnes

He is going to be a monster for us, Reminds me of Evan Turner in ways (HB deserves credit for this comparison btw) and should fit into our system from day one.

Re: Harrison Barnes (UNC 2010)

Besides dribbling so low to the ground, he is pretty much a flawless player on offense. At that size and with his ball handling skills he can get anywhere he wants on the court. Really high bball IQ on this guy.

Re: Harrison Barnes (UNC)

He's better than T-mac at the same age, and even better than Kobe. I don't want to be making such crazy comparisons, but this guy is the real deal at the wing level.

Re: Harrison Barnes (UNC)

LOL this is why you dont make posts like this especially when the guy is named Harrison Barnes. Probably the worst game you will see out of him this season. Too good of a player to not get ticked about his performance and not work out on his game.

I do worry about the system UNC is using this season though, way too many 3 pt shots. They almost look like Louisville out there.

Re: Harrison Barnes (UNC)

The national title team was before we lost pretty much our big man depth, still a damn good team though. Thing with Barnes if you watched that game was that every shot he missed looked good, that guy is seriously talented. Do you realize if he made just two of his 3's, we win that game? I like the team, Marshall is better than I expected. HB is legit. They'll be fine.
