Donnell McKenzie, another Pennsylvania native, was Barry's host for the Friday and Saturday visit, but Church and his family were particularly impressed during their private meeting with Coach Dantonio. "Coach Dantonio officially offered me a scholarship a few weeks ago, and he talked this weekend about academics coming first. He also said because the team is so young, I'd have a chance to play early in my career."
Barry has another visit scheduled this weekend at Toledo and plans to make a decision soon afterward. The Bearcats have told Church that they project him as a linebacker in college.
BCI plans to talk again with Barry next Monday and inform the red and black football fans of his decision.
