Barnes ready for GT visit

Georgia Tech is hosting several big recruits this weekend, including Enterprise (Ala.) two-way lineman T.J. Barnes, who will be taking his first official visit. Barnes is looking forward to seeing the Tech-UGA gameday atmosphere at Bobby Dodd Stadium.

"I'm taking my official visit to Georgia Tech this weekend for the Georgia game," Barnes said. "I'm looking forward to it. I hear from them a lot. I talk to Coach Giff Smith and Charles Kelly all the time. They really want me to come up there and see how it's like at Georgia Tech and in Atlanta. I leave on Friday morning."

Football season has kept Barnes pretty busy. His first game of the year was last weekend when he made the trip to Tuscaloosa to check out Alabama. The Crimson Tide lost a shocker in that one to Louisiana Monroe, 21-14. His next visit to Alabama will be official.

"I have a visit scheduled for the first weekend of December to Alabama," Barnes said. "That's the only other visit I have so far."

Auburn is the third school on his list.

"Those are the only schools really (GT, Alabama, Auburn)," Barnes said. "I don't have any favorites. They all have a chance."
