Barnes returning to USC Saturday

November 14, 2012 

Junior DL Kwamelle Barnes of Saluda has taken visits to USC and Clemson this season and plans to return over the next two weekends. His most recent trip was to LSU.

"I went to Baton Rouge for the Mississippi State game," Barnes said. "Oh man, they know how to get the crowd loud during crucial moments of the game. It was really nice there. I liked everything. The atmosphere, the campus...everything."

Though he said he does not have favorites, he named the schools he likes the most as LSU first, Clemson and North Carolina second and then USC.

His first trip to Carolina came earlier this season. "I went to Williams-Brice for my first game when they played Missouri," Barnes said. "It was amazing. They have a great environment."

He returns to Columbia this weekend and to Clemson the next. He expects his teammate, DL Dexter Widemen, to join him in Clemson.

Barnes has yet to receive his first offer.
