    Sounds like a nice addition to our CB room. Somehow our 3* and low 4* CBs have come out better than our 5* CBs. Baker, Stokes, Lassiter, Humphrey have been better than Cambell, Green, Everette even though I would put Ringo with the first group. I hope Ellis Robinson will change that.

    If a potential dynasty is recruiting me why would I snub them for a mediocre school? Worried about playing time? Just a thought.

    Humphrey was a 5*. He was higher rated than Everette. Based on the highlights Barnes's game looks a lot like a young Lassiter.

    Gotta wonder how many young guys CKS takes in this class knowing UGA needs TP defensive linemen and safties.

    Mr Barnes, rest assured you have found your home.....once again "stars" and rating services are merely cursory and often misleading....sorta like comparing a diamond at Tiffany's with a chunk of rock right out of the diamond mine......in the jewelry store, it's what you see is all you get...when that chunk of rock has the Fran Brown/Kirby Smart stamp on it....you're going to get way more than any jewelry store can provide!

    With Ondre Evens #1 CB Tenn, Ellis Robinson #2 CB Fla, and Demello Jones #12 GA.....you don't add a cubic zirconia to a Four Diamond CB ring, so Marcellus Barnes will be a perfect match for a CB ring that would make a Tiffany's Girl swoon!

    According to Rivals Humphrey was a 5* #26 overall. Everette was a 4* #42 overall. Singletary was a 5* #10 overall.

    I like it that Kirby evaluates the potential and fit far more than star rating. This is consistent with how he tries to handle NIL-don't give it as a major inducement to a high school phenom but rather to those who are actually performing well for the Dawgs.

    UGADad20, Yes, Rivals had Humphrey as a 5 star, and Everette as a 4 star, but 247sports does a composite ranking which compares all the recruiting sites, and Humphrey was still rated as a 4 star, an Everette was rated a 5 star, ESPN.com recruiting had Humphrey as a 4 star, and Everette as a 4 star, you can either pick one site, or compare them all, and that's what I did, the difference to me is Kirby brings these recruits in for the eye test, and that means more to me than all these recruiting sites.

    KId has the athleticism. He should grow into his frame and add 10-12 pounds of muscle. He has the speed, now he just needs to be coached up.

    Everette #18 & 5 star on 247sports.com

    Humphrey #88 & 4 star on 247sports.com

    Composite ranking for 247 that measures all sites together has:

    Everette #28 & 5 star

    Humphrey #81 & 4 star.

    Barnes will be this class's Bullard regardless of rankings!

    So based on Humphrey moving past Everette prior to his injury it looks like Rivals was right? Any composite that includes ESPN will be skewed wrong.
