Barrett recently reclassified from the 2019 class to the 2018 class. He remained the No. 1 overall recruit despite the switch.


Barrett's showed off his superstar potential last month as the FIBA U19 World Championships, where he put on a clinic for Team Canada against Team USA and John Calipari in the semifinal. Barrett had 38 points, 13 rebounds and five assists while leading Canada to the 99-87 win.
