Despite having played just one season of football, Berkeley Prep senior offensive tackle Kenny Barrett is headed to college on a full scholarship.

Buccaneers coach Dominick Ciao announced Monday that following a visit to the school, the 6-foot-6, 305-pound Barrett has accepted a scholarship offer from Bucknell University, a Division I-AA school in Lewisburg, Pa.

“It’s all happened kind of late but I think they (Bucknell) are getting a good athlete and it’s a good fit for him academically,” Ciao said. “He never played football until this year because he was either playing basketball or baseball or was injured. But he’s turned out to be a good football player and with his size, he’s going to make an impact there.”

Barrett was part of a Bucs line that helped their ground game averaged 204.5 yards per game. The guy Barrett spent most of his time blocking for was University of Southern California-bound Nelson Agholor, who produced 1,983 yards rushing and 28 touchdowns.

Ciao said he still has two players weighing their options for college. Quarterback Destin Nichols (6-2, 182), who passed for 1,423 yards and 19 TDs last season, and punter/kicker Justin Vogel, are considering walk-on offers at several Division-I schools.

I wonder if the coaches at Bucknell know what they’re in store for dealing with Kenny’s parents!!!
