Offensive lineman Alex Barr of Starrs Mill high school (Georgia) had a good camp at Vanderbilt on Sunday. Barr said the camp started at 9 a.m. and finished at about 3:30 p.m. The talented lineman estimated there were about 250-300 total players who participated including 31 offensive linemen. Barr says that the offensive linemen did a lot of board drills, footwork drills and 1-on-1 drills.
Barr claims he ran the forty in 5.2 seconds and also had a 5.2 in the pro shuttle which was a time he felt he could have done better.
Barr says he saw interim Vanderbilt head coach Robbie Caldwell at the camp. Caldwell worked with the offensive linemen some but also walked around and watched prospects who play at other positions.
At the end of the camp Barr was getting ready to head back to Georgia when he got a big surprise. Vanderbilt assistant Des Kitchings stopped him and asked him if he could stay a little longer because coach Caldwell wanted to speak with him. Barr then got some good news from the new VU head coach, "He said that I'd likely be getting an offer within the next week or two," said a happy Barr.
Barr says that he is extremely excited about this new development in his recruitment and that he will be eagerly waiting for a Vanderbilt offer.
Barr believes that his footwork and speed times were the thing that set him apart from other linemen. He was one of the fastest linemen at the camp.
Next up for Barr is a camp at Auburn on Saturday.
Vandy camp a success for Barr
