After visiting the New York campus last week, Anclote's Willie Barrett verbally committed to Marist College.
Barrett announced the decision on Twitter. He tweeted several photos from the snowy campus during his visit.
The 5-foot-11, 215-pounder rushed for more than 1,000 yards his senior season and scored 12 touchdowns, leading his team to the playoffs. He also was second on the team in tackles (92). He was named to the Times' all-North Suncoast first team and received an all-Suncoast honorable mention.
Marist is a Division I program in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. The Red Foxes went 8-3 last season.
