A native of Colorado Springs, and the son of NBA Hall of Famer Rick Barry
, Canyon redshirted his freshman season at the College of Charleston just like each of his four brothers who played Division I basketball elected to in the past. Brought here for his perimeter shooting, Barry did not disappoint in that aspect, showing a quick release and solid range, even if his lack of strength and high level experience made it difficult for him to hold his own on the defensive end against the extremely talented group of athletes he was matched up with on the wing. A solid athlete who just hasn't grown into his frame enough yet to know how to fully utilize his physical attributes, Barry surely garnered some very valuable experience which will serve him well moving towards his first season of college hoops. Hopefully he will continue with his unconventional underhanded granny style free throw shooting technique, which he undoubtedly learned from his father, and will surely attract attention at the national level.
