Poncho Barnwell - DE - (East) East High's big man is 6'5, 225lbs, and has already gained the attention of many Big East schools such as Connecticut, Rutgers, and Syracuse.  Barnwell could very well be RCAC Player of the Year in 2011.  He's very athletic for his size, and is a player that must be accounted for at all times.
