VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - A Lowndes offensive lineman is headed to the league...the Ivy league that is.
Tucker Barnes announced his commitment to Brown University this morning in Valdosta. The Vikings' center boasts a 4.3 GPA, and scored a 28 on the ACT.
He says he hopes to bring that south Georgia toughness to Providence, Rhode Island.
"I just think I'll be able to bring maybe something they don't have yet: a guy from the south who is willing to work hard and play hard," Barnes says.
Barnes was accepted into Brown in December. He committed to the school shortly after.
