3-star offensive lienman Chris Barnes (Lee County) has faxed in his letter of intent to UGA and is officially a Georgia Bulldog!
Barnes is a tall offensive tackle who may need gain a little weight before seeing considerable collegiate playing time. He will come to Georgia eager to polish his already-varied skillset. Likely he will play more at guard or center than at tackle, which will be no problem for the versatile lineman. An especially adept run blocker, Barnes employs excellent anticipatory footwork and sheer upper body strength to create space for his tailbacks. Barnes can accelerate past the line of scrimmage for downfield blocks due to this quickness, and a stable of talented backs at Georgia would likely appreciate the rising senior’s services somewhere down the line.
