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.
