Liberty Men's Basketball Head Coach Ritchie McKay has announced the signing of Xzavier Barmore to a national letter of intent to attend Liberty University for the 2016-17 academic year.
"Xzavier has the ability to run a team and take over a game with his ball skills and scoring prowess," McKay stated. "He always puts the team's agenda ahead of his own. Any guard that approaches play like that has a chance to be very successful."
Barmore is a 6-1 point guard who currently plays for Seneca High School in Seneca, S.C. While under the tutelage of head coach Kevin Padgett, he earned all-state honors and was an all-area selection three straight seasons (2013-15). Barmore averaged 25.9 points, 5.8 assists, 4.0 rebounds, 4.3 steals and shot 41 percent from three-point range during his junior year and holds the school record for most points in a single game (51). In addition to his high school accomplishments, he also played summer travel AAU for the highly successful, faith-based program Upward Stars in South Carolina.
"When we were at Liberty the first time, we had a class that ended up being highly acclaimed," McKay said. "And although that class achieved much, this is as excited as I have ever been about a recruiting class in their overall fit for our university, their playing ability and their character as a whole."
