Barnes was on Craig Way's radio show today to talk about Damion James returning, and Craig asked, in a roundabout way, what kind of position that would put the team in with regard to scholarships. Barnes replied that they had planned on Damion leaving, so they didn't expect to have a scholarship problem, but he said they do know what they're going to do and that it's something they've known could be a possibility for a while, so they weren't caught off guard by it. He did not offer any details, but he did say that "when it happens, everyone will be reporting it." Just speculation, but to me, sounds like a transfer. I don't think someone switching to walk-on status would really be big news. It should be noted that he never mentioned J'Covan Brown.
He also said Shawn Williams is already on campus working out and that he expects Avery Bradley and Jordan Hamilton to be here as soon as they get their final clearinghouse issues worked out. He also expects Lamarcus Aldridge to be joining Durant, Ford, Gibson, and Ivey on campus this summer.
