Barnes Likes View From The Top

Generic Script

Wonder what exactly basketball recruits do during their official recruiting visits? A recent online journal posting by Duke target Harrison Barnes sheds some light on the top recruit's visit to the Gothic Wonderland last weekend.

During his visit, Barnes sat in on team meetings, attended Duke's exhibition game against Pfeiffer, ate a steak and lobster dinner at the  home of coach Mike Krzyzewski and toured East Campus before concluding with a trip up to the bell tower of the Duke Chapel—which Barnes called a "powerful experience."

Barnes also spent portions of his weekend in sitdown meetings with Dean of Admissions Christoph Guttentag and Duke Law School Dean David F. Levi to discuss Duke's academic offerings and programs.

Barnes has indicated that he will make a decision on his future school no later than mid-November after concluding the remainder of his official visits. In addition to his trip to Durham, Barnes has made official stops at North Carolina, Oklahoma and Kansas and is scheduled to visit UCLA this weekend.
