Defensive tackle Alex Barrow's offer list has steadily grown since the summer months. Now that he has several choices, is he thinking about narrowing things down?
"I'm not ready to make a decision or anything, but there are some schools that are distancing themselves from the others a little bit," he said. "Cincinnati, Wake Forest, Maryland and Northwestern are the top four right now. There are some others like Kentucky, Pitt and Louisville that have offered, and I'm still considering them. They're right up there with the others. It's just that those four have been showing a lot of interest lately."
Of those four schools, does the 6-foot-4, 250-pound defensive lineman from Dublin (Oh.) Coffman have a top choice?
"There isn't one that is way ahead of everyone else," he said. "Cincinnati has impressed me a lot lately though. They're really close to home and are building a solid program. I don't know if they're going to be in the same conference next year, so we'll see about that. I think I could get good playing time there."
Barrow plans on taking an official visit to Cincinnati on Dec. 5th and he'll also take an official to Maryland on Dec. 12th.
Through eleven games Barrow has led Coffman to an 9-2 record. His play has been spectacular, and he has recorded nearly 60 tackles and ten sacks on the year.
