Alabama QB calls out recruits that are ‘scared to compete’

Alabama quarterback Blake Barnett took to social media to criticize high schoolers who passed on the Crimson Tide come National Signing Day.

“If you want to make yourself the best player/person you can be,” Barnett wrote, “Why would you be scared to compete?”

Barnett, a redshirt freshman, is projected to start under center for the national champs next season.

Last season he was the No. 21 recruit in the country himself.
