Alex Bars will make his own decision
"Both Brad (Penn St.) and Blake (Michigan) are own me about their school and recruiting me a little, but there is no pressure or anything for me to go there because they are there," Alex Bars told Scout. "I am going to be the one making my own decision and that is why I am taking the visits, talking to coaches, and things like that. I need to get a feel for all the different schools and just figure out where I want to be." This season, Bars has already visited Michigan, Notre Dame, and Tennessee for a game. He talks a little about each experience. Michigan: "I went up there for the Air Force game and it was a great experience. I just got to know the coaching staff more, I got to be in a great atmosphere, and I really love the fan support they have up there." Notre Dame: "There is so much tradition up there at Notre Dame and I really like that a lot. I was there for the Michigan game and I saw how the program is really coming along and improving. They have a great combination of athletics and academics there." Tennessee: "I was at UT for the Florida game and the atmosphere was really good. I got to see a lot while I was there and I liked it. It was a great game and the team played hard." The Wolverines and Volunteers have offered the 6-foot-5, 280 pound offensive tackle a scholarship and Notre Dame is showing a lot of interest. Joe Bars, Alex' father attended Notre Dame, so that is another family connection this junior has. Offers have been streaming in on a regular basis for Bars. Nebraska recently offered and schools like Duke, Mississippi State, Ohio State, Ole Miss, and Vanderbilt have offered as well. He is proud of the attention he is getting from these top universities, but he is taking things slow. "I have already visited three schools and I want to keep taking visits, keep seeing different places, keep talking to coaches, and start to form a list," Bars said. "I am looking for the combination of academics, football, and life after football. I just want good balance and a school that will prepare me for later in life." Bars is wide open to all schools right now and the next scheduled he has on his calendar is on Oct. 27 when Penn St. hosts Ohio State. He said he'd also like to get to games at Alabama and Georgia. Scout ranks Bars as the No. 25 offensive tackle in the 2014 class.
