C.E. Murray High School’s head coach, Brian Smith, said the 6-5, 290-pound offensive tackle is a young player with plenty of potential to get better. Smith took the lineman to several college football camps this summer, including a trip in July to Auburn where Barr said he enjoyed himself.
“It went great,” Barr said of his visit to Auburn. “I got a good workout and I learned more about playing on the offensive line. The camp helped me get my footwork right and it helped my leg get better.”
Bothered by a leg problem that was corrected by surgery, it’s full speed ahead for the big lineman in 2014.
Barr measured in at the Auburn camp at six-foot-five, 290 pounds with an 85-inch wingspan. UNC-Charlotte likes his potential and was the first college to offer.
In addition to Auburn, Barr camped at South Carolina and North Carolina State.
The lineman said that now that his leg is doing better he can’t wait to show wait he can do this fall. Asked if he has set any goals for the 2014 season, Barr said, “To make myself better and do the best I can do.”
