Barnes recruiting moving slowly 

October, 12, 2011
AUSTIN, Texas -- The recruitment of quarterback LaBradford “Del” Barnes (Henderson, Texas/Henderson) is still moving at a snail's pace, according to his high school coach Dickey Meeks.

Meeks got a call from Longhorns co-offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin on Sept. 19 requesting film of his 6-foot, 175-pound quarterback. Texas Tech had also inquired about Barnes around that time. But nothing much has changed since then.

“Not a whole lot,” Meeks said Tuesday. “We are still getting a couple of calls from some local schools, but nothing like it should be. Stephen F. Austin and McMurray University have called.”
