2012 Prospect Profile: Qua Barnes

Qua Barnes - RB - 5'9" 160
Apopka, FL - Apopka HS
4.4 40
Interested In: Florida
Film:  SO Year

Prep: (FR) Did not play or not stats recorded) (SO) In a week twelve playoff game against Orlando Dr. Phillips rushed 29 times for 169 yards and 2 TD's leading team to 58-52 win.  Had 138 All Purpose yards against a very tough Treasure Coast defense in a 7-0 win. Finished great sophomore season with 123 carries 1,225 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns.  Also added 204 receiving yards, 2 TD's and had additional yardage and TD's on special teams as a returner (receiving yards unofficial, no special teams stats found). 

Analysis:  Qua Barnes is an extremely quick athlete.  He has some of the fastest feet out there.  At the line of scrimmage he displays elite vision.  He understands to be patient and allow his blocks to set up.  He also has the ability to set up his blocks by cutting up field.  In the open field Qua has all the moves.  He has quick enough feet to juke elite defenders or spin around them.  He has great speed allowing him to turn many long runs into touchdowns.  Has great hands as well.  Extremely versatile player who translates into a small scat back or a slot at the next level.  Also a very dangerous returner.  Needs to work on getting stronger in the lower body and ability to finish runs tough.

Seen this athlete play during the whole and he has all the moves to play D1. Excellent feet and vision and will mix it up in the middle with tough runs. I see great things in 2010-2011 season
