You can bet Baylor is going to figure out a way to get the ball in Kalon Barnes’ hands. No one can catch him.

Barnes, a three-star signee in Baylor’s 2018 football recruiting class, broke the National Federation of State High Schools Associations record in the 100 meters on Saturday.


Barnes’ blistering 10.04 unofficially breaks the record of 10.15 that was set by multiple runners, most recently in 2011.

A native of Silsbee, Texas, Barnes committed to Baylor in May of 2017. The high school wide receiver was ranked as the No. 82 wide receiver in the country and the No. 85 player in the state of Texas.
