Bars bound for SEC or following brothers?

Keep it locked to InsideTennessee to stay updated on all the recruiting news coming out of Big Orange Country. See below to find out about a Class of 2014 standout.

From the Big 10 to the ACC to the Southeastern Conference, Alex Bars has added scholarship offers in bunches and has a number of options on where to play his college football.

Tennessee was one of the first schools to put a scholarship on the table for the Montgomery Bell (Tenn.) Academy lineman. Bars is of great need for the Class of 2014 as the Big Orange could very well lose all five starting O-linemen after the 2013 season.

The 6-foot-6, 286-pounder is rated as the No. 25 offensive tackle in the country. The four-star is FOX Sports NEXT's No. 4 player in the Volunteer State with Nos. 1 and 2 already committed as running back Jalen Hurd and safety Todd Kelly Jr. both pulled the trigger in the last week.

InsideTennessee first reported Bars' offer from the Vols when it came on June 10, 2012. Check out what the Nashville native said to IT in the video below after Tennessee's first scrimmage of the spring:
