2011 Oklahoma Commit Chris Barnett Withdraws From School

Well isn't the offseason fun? 2011 OU verbal tight end commit Chris Barnett has withdrawn from Euless Trinity High School.  Chris has a lot of talent, and can be a great player at Oklahoma, but there have been a lot of weird stories coming out about the relationship he has with his High School football program.  Word out of Euless is that Chris may not have been starting this upcoming season, some say due to the system that Trinity employs. Then after this past weekend's TCU camp, there was some very high praise for Barnett and his ability. We certainly hope that Chris gets everything straightened out and gets enrolled in another school (apparently he will be enrolling at A. Maceo Smith) as quickly as possible.

From the Dallas Morning News

Elzie Barnett said Wednesday that his son isn't enrolled in any school right now and living with his grandmother. Chris Barnett played his sophomore and junior seasons at A. Maceo Smith. He spent his freshman year at Garland while living with Elzie's mother.

"I have no idea what he wants to do," Elzie Barnett said. "I don't want to talk to a reporter about why he withdrew from school. Without talking about his personal business, being away from Euless, Texas, is the best thing for Chris Barnett."

Elzie Barnett said the family has a retreat planned for this weekend where they'll go down to New Braunfels and meet to talk about where Chris wants to enroll in school.

Elzie said that "more than likely" he'll end up back at A. Maceo Smith.
