There's a very good chance that Mudiay will leave Dallas after a year, so locking up a capable replacement was very important. For the past few months, Brown and his staff had been focusing intently on Barefield.
A strong 6-foot-2 floor general from Corona (Calif.) Centennial who currently ranks No. 85 in the class of 2015, Barefield committed at the conclusion of an official visit on Monday night.
"Sedrick committed tonight, SMU," Barefield's father Ray texted Rivals.com.
Strong in all aspects of the game, Barefield has had a very good junior season. He has learned to play under more control, has become a much more consistent jump shooter and decision-maker and he has added good strength to his frame.
This spring and summer, Barefield will be back on the grassroots circuit with his longtime team the Compton Magic. With offers from high major programs all across the country, he could have easily dragged his recruitment out. However, he found exactly what he wanted in SMU and Brown.
"He is excited and grateful," said Barefield's father. "He wants to win and learn as much as he can to be his best and bring out the best in his teammates."
