Alex Barr and his dad enjoyed watching the scrimmage. "You could tell they were getting physical out there and going at it pretty hard," said Barr. "I enjoyed watching the scrimmage."
Following the scrimmage, Barr had a chance to talk to a few of the Tech coaches. "I talked with Coach (Mike) Sewak and Coach ("Buzz") Preston my recruiting coach." Both coaches let Barr know that they were taking one more offensive lineman in the 2011 class. "They told me they would be going over my film in more detail and would be evaluating me as one of the linemen that they would be looking at to extend an offer during the upcoming evaluation period."
Part of that evaluation will be seeing Barr in action once his season begins. "I hope they will come to some games because I feel they can get a better perception of what I can do as opposed to watching film."
Barr has four or five other schools besides Tech that are taking a look at him. "Vanderbilt, Middle Tennessee State, South Carolina, Kentucky and Auburn are some of the schools that I'm hearing from. " Barr doesn't have any offers but feels that offers will come once his senior season starts and schools see him in action.
Alex spent part of his summer attending camps. "I was the offensive line MVP at the MVP camp held at Auburn," said Barr. "It was an honor to win that award."
Of the schools recruiting Alex, there aren't any that stand out to him right now. "All of them are on a level playing field right now and I'm wide open to them or any other school that recruits me."
Barr has plans to attend as many Tech games as possible this season. An offer from them would put them high on his list. "They have a lot to offer both as a student and a football player."
Look for the 6'7"- 300 Barr to start getting more attention, once schools begin watching him during his senior season.
