What makes you stand out as a future collegiate athlete?
I can play any position a coach would want me to play, I've played fullback, tight end, linebacker, offensive line, and defensive line. I'm very good in the classroom and I have great relationships with my teachers and coaches.
Barton has a solid frame that he is growing into, and just based off his weight lifting numbers, it is easy to see him growing into a SDE. He’s a really tough football player, and plays the game with a ton of intensity. He just physically whips his man by being more explosive and athletic. He was predominantly a defensive lineman his junior year. He looked really quick off the ball and even blocked a few kicks timing his jump up the middle. Barton is a big physical player, and his improved quickness makes us believe he can play at the FBS level.
