Martize Barr Talks New Mexico Trip talked with 2010 prospect Martize Barr from Coolidge High School in Washington, D.C. The talented wide receiver just got back from his official visit to his current leader and came away impressed.

Martize Barr named New Mexico as his leader recently and after taking his official there this weekend nothing has changed.

"I went out there on Friday," said Barr. "The campus is beautiful. The coaches are great and are very organized with the program. I got to talk with Head Coach (Mike) Locksley and he told me I am perfect for their slot receiver position. They like me to come in motion for hand-offs and quick screens. He also said I would have a chance to play early."

Barr knows some players there and is familiar with New Mexico which is unusual for a school so far away. "I know some players that played against me and are out there now. They just told me about the school and the team. They definitely like the direction of the program and so do I."

New Mexico has made a big impact on Barr and he may be ready to commit soon. "I may verbal this week. I will give it a lot of thought and I may take my scheduled visit to Rutgers this weekend if I don't commit to New Mexico before then."
