Barr set for Cal official visit

Todd Barr is finally taking his official visit to Cal this weekend and although the Golden Bears are considered one of his favorites the four-star defensive end said he's still considering other schools.
Oregon, Florida and Miami are still in the running for Barr, a 6-foot-3, 265-pound prospect from Lakewood, Calif., who just wrapped up his senior season - and it was another productive one.
It was a spectacular year for Barr as he finished with 74 tackles, 20 sacks and two fumble recoveries. In spot duty as a tight end, Barr scored seven touchdowns.
There has been speculation that Cal is the favorite - and he possibly even considered committing there at some point in the past few months - but Barr has taken other trips and has been intrigued with some other national programs.
"They are all big visits," Barr said in a text message earlier this week.
Rivals.com rates Barr No. 11 at strong-side defensive end, No. 111 overall and No. 10 in the California state rankings. In his junior season, he finished with 87 tackles, 12 sacks and a fumble recovery.
Almost everyone in the Pac-10 except USC has offered Barr, who also has Boise State, Nebraska, TCU, Tennessee, Texas Tech, Utah and many other high-profile programs on his list.
This summer Barr said that Cal was definitely his leader and the Golden Bears still have to be considered a frontrunner but the Lakewood standout has taken other visits and other teams have impressed him. His official visit this weekend in Berkeley could be key in his recruitment.
