Jacksonville (FL) Trinity Christian Academy and Utah commit, senior wide receiver Chris Barr made the trip to Wisconsin to see what the Badgers had to offer. They rolled out the red carpet for the talented Sunshine State stud and made him feel definitely wanted.
“I loved the trip,” Barr told BadgerNation. “It was great. I got to see basically everything and talked to a lot of people. I got to see the dorms, where they go to class at, the facilities. I basically saw it all. I talked to Coach (Gary) Andersen, Coach (Ben) Strickland and Coach (Bill) Busch. The most I talk to was Coach Strickland and Coach Busch. They were just basically telling me they really really interested in me. They said I could come in and compete for a starting position. They would give me a chance if I come and how they still take care of players after football and there for you in your personal life, too.”
After the great visit to Madison, what does the No. 85 ranked dynamic and play making 5-11,170-pound wide out feel about the Badgers, despite dealing with the cold and snow?
“I am very interested in Wisconsin, but I am still committed to Utah,” said Barr. “The visit did help Wisconsin’s chances. It was a nice experience and it was my first time being around snow. It was not even all that bad and how I thought it would be. Everything was okay when I had my jacket on, but the only thing cold was my feet. I feel like if you can sit in it, then you can play in it.”
Barr did not make the travel alone as his teammate in senior middle linebacker and North Carolina commit, Andre Smith took an official visit as well. Barr gave a little insight on how Smith thought of his feelings toward Wisconsin.“Him and me were talking about the visit like how they were playing and he thought highly of Wisconsin,” said Barr.
