Dallas (Texas) Duncanville three-star center Cameron Barnes has committed to Ole Miss, he tells On3.

“I chose Ole Miss because Coach Beard and his staff were very intentional about me while on my visit,” Barnes said to On3. “Coach (Chris) Beard is one of the best college coaches in the nation and the plan he has in place for me which includes top strength and conditioning coordinator Coach John Reilly, will also be a big part of my player development. I’m excited about our coaching staff, the team and Ole Miss as a whole!”

Barnes was one of the top remaining center prospects in the 2023 class, prior to his commitment. He recently visited Oxford, leading to his decision. South Dakota and Boston Univeristy also hosted Barnes on visits, according to his Instagram page.

According to the On3 Industry Rankings, Barnes ranks as the No. 168 overall prospect in the 2023 class. He’s also the nation’s No. 17 center and the No. 17 player in the state of Texas.

Cameron Barnes will join fellow three-star big man Jacob Gazzo, as well as three transfers — Georgetown’s Brandon Murray (13.7 PPG), Arizona State’s Austin Nunez (4.5 PPG), and Western Kentucky’s Jamarion Sharp (7.4 PPG, 7.7 RPG, 4.1 BPG).
