The OkPrepXtra Top 25 list comes up to #11, and there really isn't a finer family in the entire state than the Barresis.
Ben Barresi has continued to wow college coaches from across the nation at every camp that he attends. After attending the Nike camp in Palo Alto, CA, Barresi came away with the notion that he got the respect on the west coast that he deserves.
"I had a really nice camp," said Barresi. "Now I am just ready for the season to start so I can show them what I can do during gametime."
"I expect some really great things this season from the team and myself," said Barresi. "I have lost excess weight and my speed and strength have improved greatly. Things will be alot different this year."
"Our biggest games will be September 10th at Edmond Santa Fe and October 1st at Tulsa Union. Those will be tough on the road, but we aren't intimidated."
"I am getting ready to leave for camp at Texas A&M. I have heard alot of really great things about the atmosphere, coach Francione, and the school. We'll see how things go."
"I still have offers from Oklahoma State, Wyoming, and Louisiana-Monroe. My top three schools are OU, OSU, and TU though."
"I may be very close to committing, possibly this weekend. I will let YOU [OkPrepXtra] know first."
Stay tuned to OkPrepXtra for the updates on his decision.
