Barrow and his dad drove to Atlanta last Saturday to visit Georgia Tech and attend their game with Clemson. Malik spent some time with the recruits attending the game as well as some of the Tech commits.

A tour of the newly remodeled weight room, and other football facilities was also a part of the visit. Malik liked what he saw from the facilities and the stadium. “You can tell Georgia Tech is taking everything serious when it comes to their football program."

The trip to Tech was a return visit for Barrow. “I was there for my first time back in the spring and that is when the coaches really let me know how they felt about me.” Barrow was offered on the visit.

The Tech coaches are looking at Malik as one of their top defensive line targets. The feeling is that Malik could grow into the defensive tackle position from his current defensive end position. Malik is currently 6'3"- 250. “They told me the door is open for me to come back anytime I want to do so."

Barrow plans to return to Tech for bowl practice and Junior Day. “I want a chance to talk to the coaches in depth to learn about the school from the academic side as well as the football side.” Malik wants to see what it’s like to be a student. Barrow plans to major in Business Administration.

While Barrow has 15 offers, he isn’t ready to reveal the schools that stand out more than the others. There are two schools that Barrow would like to hear from. "Florida and Florida State are the two since they are the state schools. That doesn't mean they will be my favorites if they offer."
