Blake Barnett is one of the top quarterback recruits in the country, and when he initially committed to Notre Dame the Irish felt they had landed a star. Now he’s back on the market, with schools like Alabama clamoring for his signature.
This highlight reel showcases why.
The video you see above was filmed by Bleacher Report at a New York City field, where Barnett was filming an interview with former Texas and NFL signal called Chris Simms, who now works as a college football personality for the network. Yet, before Simms got to the questions, Barnett showed off some of his arm skills and remarkable accuracy. Needless to say, its impressive.
Barnett drills an elevated road cone from a cool 35 yards, and also drilled a trash can from an even more impressive 50 yards. That’s solid, folks. Whether Barnett chooses Nick Saban and Alabama, Oregon or any of the other top programs on his tail remains to be seen.
By the time he picks, he might even have more tricks to show off.
