NORWALK, CA — Scottie Barnes, the 6-foot-7 small forward from the University (FL) School, told ZAGSBLOG on Friday at the Pangos All-American Camp that Florida, Florida State, and Miami are the three schools working the hardest in his recruitment. He broke down each school:
Florida: “It’s close to home. It’s only three hours away, so it would be easy to travel back home.”
Florida State: “They did well this year. They made it to the Elite 8 and they’re a very good program. They know how to win.”
Miami: “It’s only an hour from me. They have a good coach and a very nice campus.”
