Barr Inching Closer To Decision

Houston Westbury Christian center Jeremy Barr has taken a pair of official visits. Following the Final Four he'll take one more and at that time might be able to reach a decision.

Jeremy Barr, a 6-foot-8 center out of Westbury Christian in Houston, is inching closer to a decision. According to his high school coach Greg Glenn, Barr has taken two visits and has another scheduled.

Barr visited Bob Knight's Texas Tech program and liked what he saw.

"He had a good visit at Tech," Glenn said. "He enjoyed spending some time at Tech. I think that he was concerned early on in terms of what kind of role he would play in the offense. But, I think Coach Knight did a nice job of showing him how he was going to try and develop him into a player who can score from different parts of the floor."

Southern Cal and new skipper Tim Floyd also had a shot at hosting the big Bahamian. Their pitch was similar: we can develop you into a player. "With Coach Floyd, he's demonstrated a great history of developing a few no-name players who have played in the NBA," Glenn said. "His pitch to Jeremy is the same; he had a very good visit out there to USC as well."

At this point, Barr's lone remaining visit will be with Colorado the weekend following the Final Four. While the Buffs have a visit date, Arizona State, Oklahoma State and Tulsa are trying to get involved. "We'll just try to find out how many of the things are important to him are [at each school]," Glenn said. "We'd love to see this come to a close by the first day of the signing period."
