Let's have closer look into His outlook: (by Netanel Dahan)
A very good scoring combo guard, started his first 2 years for U-Washington as a PG with Brandon Roy, and spent his last 2 years at the shooting guard spot. Lighting quick. A prolific scorer who can make a lot of points in short amount of time and "shoot the lights out" even at the elite level. Very handful player with great ball handling skills and control. Has an incredible athleticism for his size. Great shooter from every range. Makes good use of spin dribble and screens to score or kick out. He is very tough, strong and confident, and has no fear at all to face tall defenders although he is small for good and bad. He is a good penetrator and drives both ways although it seems he prefers more to drive to the right always looking for contact. An amazing 1 on 1 player very hard to stop even at the very high level-very creative and versatile.
A solid passer (3rd all time assists leader for U-Washington) with good court vision. As for his defense he is a good stealer (2nd all time steals leader for U-Washington) and has very strong legs, quick hands, and quick footwork but it seems that he needs to a little more aggressive or put little more effort to guard NBA players on daily base. His shot selection also can be little better. His brother Bruce Barron committed to Oregon after getting 89 rating from ESPN and being nominated to McDonalds All America.
