Junior defensive back Robert Barnes made a "hard commitment" to the Sooners back in September; however, as recent as last month, he's still been receiving offers from other schools. Notre Dame was the latest on Jan. 22, extending the offer to head coach Hal Wasson on a visit to Carroll ISD, according to 247sports.com.
The 6-2, 185-pounder received previous offers from Alabama, Duke, Baylor, Ohio State, and other schools before accepting his offer to Oklahoma. He made first team defense in Class 7-6A in 2015-16, finishing the year with 105 tackles (2 for a loss), an interception, 7 deflections, a forced fumble, and a quarterback hurry.
After accepting his offer, he did visit Texas and Baylor, but has not strayed from his decision. Thirteen schools have offered the Dragon a chance to play football at the next level. Barnes is set to attend Junior Day at Oklahoma University this Saturday.
