Zooming: Darren Barkins

June 18, 2020

The Ducks reeled in a duo of defensive backs in recent weeks, one of which was cornerback Darren Barkins from Mater Dei Catholic High School in Chula Vista, California. Barkins had 17 offers per 247 Sports, with many of Oregon's Pac 12 opponents involved in his recruitment, mainly UCLA, Cal, Arizona, Washington, and Utah.

Barkins measures in at 6-1, 170 pounds and his game is highlighted by his tackling ability in the open field, his ability to change direction, and his speed. Barkins committed to the Ducks sight unseen. I talk to Barkins about what led to his decision and how he's been developing relationships with other members of the 2021 Oregon recruiting class.
