With college football back in full swing, high school seniors are setting up their official visits, or at least thinking about where they would like to travel this fall. One of those prospects is Jacksonville (FL) Trinity Christian Academy senior wide receiver, and Utah commit, Chris Barr, who wants to check out a few places like Wisconsin.
“I am committed, but I am still going to take my five official visits,” Barr told BadgerNation. “I am going to take one of them to Wisconsin, but I just don’t know when. I also want to take official visits to Indiana, Rutgers, Louisville and Utah. I have talked to Coach Ben Strickland on Twitter, but not on the phone. He was just pretty much asking how I was doing and it wasn’t really nothing too big.”
The 5-11, 170-pound speedy wide out knows the process is far from over with schools still pursuing him, including Wisconsin, and wants to see how they compare to Utah.
“I am interested in Wisconsin and can’t wait to take an official visit there,” said Barr. “I want to see if it is the right place or not because it is a long way from now to February. I want to see how it is and if I like it, then they will be one of my top schools. Basically, I want to have a good relationship with the coaching staff, be able to have a shot to play my freshman year and academic wise have a good criminal justice degree.”
The season is in full swing for many teams, but Barr’s team has only got one game under their belt due to a bye week and a rainout. Still that hasn’t slowed his drive to make his team better, especially the guys coming up in the program.
“We are ready to play now,” said Barr. “Basically, I need to work on my leadership and make big plays, so we can win games. I have always tried to be a leader for my team and I was on varsity since 9th grade, so now it is my time to step up. I am a senior now and I need to lead the young kids. I got young kids behind us and I try to teach them stuff that I learned when I was in the 9th or 10th grade, so they can be a better player.”
