And Barr said one of the major reasons he is listing Rutgers as his top choice is an experience he had a few years ago when he attended a summer camp and got to catch passes from current Scarlet Knights quarterback Tom Savage.
"He was at the Rutgers camp, the big-time showcase camp, and we really connected,'' the 6-foot, 195-pound Barr said. "It was a lot of fun with him.''
He is also getting interest from Iowa, and D.C.-area schools Howard, Hampton and Old Dominion.
"Right now, Rutgers is No. 1,'' Barr said. "The receivers they have play a lot like the game that I play. I like the pro-style offense. I know Tom Savage, and the coaches. When I talk to the recruiting coach (Fred Mariani), he seems real cool.''
Barr is being recruited by defensive line coach Gary Emanuel, whom Barr classified as "a nice coach, and I have a real connection with the coaching staff.''
Barr said he has 33 catches for 697 yards and two touchdowns. He also returned two punts for touchdowns.
"I break a lot of tackles,'' he said. "The first man, I love to make miss. Once you make that first man miss, there are not a lot of people that are going to get you.''
