Early years

Barnett attended Santiago High School in Corona, California. He played football for Santiago High School and was rated as a five-star recruit and was ranked among the top players in his class.[2][3] He committed to the University of Alabama to play college football under head coach Nick Saban.[4]

College career

Barnett redshirted his first year at Alabama in 2015. Barnett entered his redshirt freshman season in 2016 as Alabama's starting quarterback, but lost the job to true freshman Jalen Hurts before halftime of the opening game against the USC Trojans.[5][6] On September 28, 2016, AL.com’s Matt Zenitz reported that Barnett had left the team and had decided to transfer from the University of Alabama.[7] On December 5, 2016, Barnett announced that he was transferring to Arizona State University.[8] After leaving Alabama and prior to transferring to Arizona State, Barnett immediately enrolled at Palomar College, which made him eligible to play for Arizona State in 2017. However, he was expected to be ineligible for the first four games of the 2017 season because he transferred from Alabama after four games into the 2016 season. Barnett appealed to the NCAA for immediate eligibility and on January 31, 2017, the NCAA ruled in favor of Barnett.[9][10]

After being cleared to play immediately by the NCAA, Barnett was expected to be a strong contender to start right away at Arizona State, but incumbent starter Manny Wilkins won the quarterback derby and held onto his starting job. Barnett attempted only five passes during the 2017 season as the backup quarterback. In 2018, under new head coach Herm Edwards, Barnett was spending most sessions during the spring battling Dillon Sterling-Cole for the backup quarterback job behind Wilkins. On April 25, 2018, it was reported that Barnett intended to transfer from Arizona State. Barnett reportedly informed Arizona State his intention to transfer soon after the Arizona State spring game held on April 13.[11][12]

On May 8, 2018, it was reported that Barnett was transferring to the University of South Florida.[13] On May 18, 2018, USF announced the addition of Barnett as a graduate transfer.[14]

Alabama Crimson Tide football under Nick Saban

Alabama Crimson Tide football under Nick Saban covers the history of the Alabama Crimson Tide football program during the period from when Nick Saban was hired as head coach in 2007 through the present. Under Saban, Alabama plays as part of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), and is a member of the West Division of the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The Crimson Tide plays its home games at Bryant–Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. During the eleven years Saban has served as head football coach, Alabama has compiled an overall official record of 141-21 (.870) (146–21 on the field), 14 bowl game appearances with 10 victories, seven SEC Western Division titles, six SEC championships, and five national championships. Since 2008, Saban's teams have spent all or part of each season ranked number 1 in national polls.

On January 7, 2008, Nick Saban officially accepted the head coaching position with the Crimson Tide. The team experienced many highs-and-lows, but the team finished with a loss after losing in the National Championship to Number 2 Clemson. In the 2008 season, Saban led the Crimson Tide to their first undefeated regular season since the 1994 season, but the Tide then proceeded to lose their final two games in the SEC Championship Game and Sugar Bowl. In 2009, Saban led Alabama to a perfect 14–0 record and to their first BCS National Championship, and their first overall national championship since the 1992 season. After a relatively disappointing 10–3 2010 season, Saban then led the Crimson Tide to back-to-back BCS National Championships in both the 2011 and 2012 seasons. The 2013 team won the first 11 games of the season, but failed to capture a third consecutive national championship for Alabama, losing the last two games. Saban's 2014 team won the SEC West division and SEC championship and lost to the Ohio State Buckeyes in the inaugural College Football Playoff's semi-final round at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans to finish 12-2. Saban won his 4th championship at Alabama in 2015 and his 5th at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 2017.

Under his tenure, Mark Ingram Jr. in 2009, and Derrick Henry in 2015 became Alabama's first and second Heisman Trophy winners and 52 players have been recognized as First Team All-Americans, 35 of which were either consensus or unanimous selections. Additionally, 77 former Crimson Tide players have been drafted into the National Football League, with 26 being first round selections.

South Florida Bulls football statistical leaders

The South Florida Bulls football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the South Florida Bulls football program in various categories, including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, all-purpose yardage, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Bulls represent the University of South Florida in the NCAA's American Athletic Conference.

South Florida began competing in intercollegiate football in 1997, so the typical issues with school records do not exist. There is no period of the late 19th and early 20th century with spotty, incomplete records. Also, the Bulls' records are also not affected by the 1972 NCAA decision to allow freshmen to play varsity football or the 2002 NCAA decision to count bowl games in players' official statistics. One minor issue is that the Bulls played their first four seasons in Division I-AA, now known as Division I FCS, which limits teams to 11 regular-season games (in most years) instead of the 12 that have been allowed in Division I FBS throughout USF's football history.

The lists below are updated through Week 13 of the 2018 season.
