Harrison Barnes is a parent’s dream, an opposing coach's nightmare and UNC’s prized recruit


When the legend from the grainy video tapes finally was before his eyes, Harrison Bryce Jordan Barnes wanted to cover his ears. Barnes, a senior from Ames, Iowa, who is considered the top high school player in the country by many, was on a visit to UNC with his mother, Shirley Barnes, when he first met Michael Jordan. "Coach (Roy) Williams called Harrison into a room and said, ‘I want you to meet someone,'" Shirley said. "So after Harrison met him he said, ‘The only thing that ruined it was my mom squealing like a school girl in the background.'" (Chicago Tribune)
