Although Bryce Barnes of Bogan committed to UW-Milwaukee back in January, the hard-nosed point guard was open to other options following the firing of his future coach, Rob Jeter.
But after a short courtship and looking at a few other schools, Barnes has decided to head to where he originally committed, signing with first-year coach LaVall Jordan and the Panthers.
“I really liked coach Jordan as a person,” says Barnes. “He’s the ideal role model. I went to a practice and watched how into it he was and how active he was. Plus, he helped develop Trey Burke at Michigan. I’m excited to be coming in with coach Jordan to do big things in the Horizon League.”
A tough, strong and competitive point guard who provides an on-the-ball defensive presence, Barnes becomes Jordan’s first signed recruit. Jordan, a former assistant coach at Michigan, was hired to replace Jeter earlier this month.

Those from Chicago know this is a pretty big event. This year alone D-Rose, Sonny Parker and Bo Ellis were in attendance. Past players that you may have heard of(You probably have) are guys like Kiefer Sykes, Frank Kaminsky,Tai Odaiase, Greg Mays, Billy Garret JR(Depaul), Miles Renyolds(SLU), Ben Moore(SMU), Sean O'Mara(Xavier), Charles Matthews(Kentucky). So it's clearly a pretty big deal to win MVP at this thing.
