North Carolina Tar Heel basketball recruit Harrison Barnes (SF, 6′8″, 209 lbs) has been named the Iowa Gatorade Player of the Year for the second straight season. Considered by many to be both the top high school player in the nation for the class of 2010 and also a candidate to only play one year in college, Barnes is racking up the awards and will soon be playing in the McDonald’s All-American game and Jordan Brand Classic.

Barnes is also the choice for the Iowa Newspaper Association’s “Mr. Basketball” in the state of Iowa:

"Barnes, a 6'8'' forward who finished his high school career as Ames’ leading scorer with 1,787 points, will play college basketball for Roy Williams at the University of North Carolina.

"The INA also named Ames senior Harrison Barnes as its “Mr. Basketball” choice for 2010."
