Barnes honored by 5-star ranking

Bunn (NC) Bunn High athlete Brandon Barnes had a feeling he would be coveted by college coaches due to his play making ability and speed. However, what he didn't know, what he never could have expected was to be this highly sought after, or even this highly ranked by Rivals.com.
