Available's! Destin Barnes Starts Strong At Don Bosco Prep

Former Homewood-Flossmoor standout Destin Barnes is off to a strong start as a postgraduate at Northwest Indiana-based prep school heavyweight Don Bosco Prep (IN). He ranks among the better available wing prospects in the Midwest.

Barnes, a 6’6 wing, averaged 19.5 points and 9.0 rebounds in his first two games with Don Bosco playing against junior college teams. Barnes connected on 14-26 of his field goal attempts inside the three-point arc, and 3-7 of his shots from behind the three-point arc.

Barnes averaged 15.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game last year as a senior at H-F en route to leading the team to the SouthWest Suburban Blue title.

Barnes is also a strong student in the classroom and comes to Don Bosco with a 3.4 grade point average, and has already scored 26 on the ACT.

Barnes competed on the travel team circuit with Team Rose.

Don Bosco will be in action this Friday when they host Cincinnati State, the #7-ranked D2 junior college in the country.
