Rankings: Rivals 3* (position NR, State NR), Scout 2* (position 198), ESPN 3* (rated a 71, 168 position, 64 state, 247 Sports 3* (rated an 84, position 157 state 62). Selected Boston College over Ohio Air Force and Akron. Originally recruited by Jim Bollman.

Strengths: Curious thought watching his highlight reels. Most of it shows Barksdale as an option read QB, kind of like what Addazio is going to be looking for to run his offense. And the scary thing is, he seems pretty good at it. He has good speed, cuts and makes good moves. Nothing against his WR highlights, there just isn't a lot of them and they don't show more to me other than he seems to have good hands.

Realistic Outlook: BC has a bevy of wide receivers on the roster. Will Addazio give him some reps at quarterback for the future, or is he locked in at wide receiver? Not a bad little player, but I will need to see more to get a better read on what type of receiver he will be. Kind of reminds me of Spiffy Evans, but faster.
