QB Barber makes pledge to Jacksonville State

Lake City (Fla.) Columbia signal caller Jayce Barber committed to FCS program Jacksonville State on Thursday.
Last fall, Barber threw for 1,300 yards and 13 TD's with 3 INT's. He also rushed for 500 yards and seven scores. It doesn't hurt having 5-star and Rivals 100 OT Laremy Tunsil helping to protect his blindside.
The dual-threat QB chose Jacksonville State over an offer from Liberty University because of the academics and playing time.

"They have an excellent business program and the starter is a senior so I have chance to play early and get a good degree," Barber said. "I have a great relationship with TE coach Tommy Joe Whiddon and head coach Jack Crowe. This is the right fit for me."
Now that Barber has his commitment out of the way he wants to focus on winning a state title and making the all-state team. Behind the blocking of Tunsil and the run-pass option of Barber, the Tigers have a chance to earn a district title this fall.
