Prior to arriving in Philadelphia, the 6-foot-6, 225-pound Barry started his college career playing in the junior college ranks at Independence Community College in Kansas, known by many as the school featured in Netflix's "Last Chance U" season three. At Independence, the Prospect (Kent.) native had a 37.4 yard average on 47 punts across nine games, which also featured a long of 72 yards. 

The Ducks have seen significant news with their specialists this offseason, with Will Hutchinson, Henry Kattleman, Race Mahlum and Cristiano Palazzo all entering the transfer portal. Hutchinson was the only punter available in the team's annual spring game, as it didn't feature veteran Tom Snee, who Dan Lanning said was "away" from the program following the spring game after being absent at all practices.

Oregon signed Washington State transfer kicker Andrew Boyle in February, but he was not with the team during spring football.
