Video: Barnes talks UGA & puts on a show

Dennis Felton received some good news recently when Chris Barnes picked the Dawgs over Kentucky and Oklahoma. UGASports.com traveled over to Riverdale High School on Thursday to visit with Barnes. We talked with him about his commitment and then captured exclusive video of Barnes doing some impressive dunks.

Barnes is a 6-foot-8, 240-pound forward out of Riverdale (Ga.) - Riverdale. He can post up, run the court, grab some rebounds, and be a force down on the blocks.

He had his list trimmed to Georgia, Kentucky, and Oklahoma recently and decided on Wednesday that he wanted to play for Coach Felton and be a Georgia Bulldog.

UGASports.com broke the story Wednesday evening and we followed up with it by visiting Barnes on Thursday.

We sat down with this future Dawg for an in-depth interview about why he chose UGA, who he chose them over, what the Dawgs are getting, how well he knows Jeremy Price (another UGA commit), and more.

Not only did we capture this exclusive video interview, but we also captured video of Barnes putting on a dunk show in front of many of his friends after a big Homecoming pep rally.

I am not sure which video is more impressive, but you should check them both out to get a feel of what kind of person and player the Georgia Hoop Dawgs are getting in Barnes.
