The brother of incoming freshman tackle Blake Bars has been offered by the coaching staff according to TomVH. As of now, Alex is not sure which side of the ball he'll end up on.
New 2014 Offer: OL/DL Alex Bars ($)
Shoot, I posted that info at 7:02 this morning. TomVH is a slacker.
He got soft. It's the 9-5 with 2-hour 3-martini lunches. He's lost his edge.
Is it safe to assume he's a Michigan lean then because of his brother?
His other brother is at Penn State, so I wouldn't assume that...
although his maternal grandfather and uncle played for Michigan. And his paternal grandfather pitched for the Dodgers. (Link)
That is one athletic family.
geez.... that's not even fair...
But we're way better than Penn State, so that doesn't matter.
Honestly, if you want to play in the Big Ten, and you have M or OSU as an option, you need to take it. Everyone else is going to get steamrolled for the foreseeable future.
He grew up in Michigan during earlyish childhood--not sure what age he was when they moved to TN. Just adding to the convo...
So I'm not sure I would assume that yet. It doesn't hurt. Nice to see he already has some big offers like Tennessee, Vandy, and Kentucky.
His dad played football at Brother Rice and Notre Dame, and his mom swam at MSU. Family has a lot of state of Michigan connections.
I don't have insider information or anything but it really depends on the family and the situation. Look at OSU for 2013. Fans were certain they were going to get Mike Heuerman and Jaylon Smith this year because both of their older brothers are on the team and yet both of them are going to Notre Dame. Sometimes you just want to blaze your own path in life, other times if you're really close it sounds like a great opportunity.
See him starting his own legacy....He's choosing between Clemson and Michigan. $100.
Really? I haven't seen anything tangible that would say that VT is not his leader.
Most of what I have heard says that Fuller's top two are VT and Clemson. Michigan is in third right now.
I'd like to see Kendal fuller make his own path to Michigan. But I won't hold my breath with him.
added a Michigan offer yesterday as well... I'd edit this post buy I really think he's SEC-bound already.
Fournette reported having a Michigan offer in this article that was posted on June 22, or at least that's the first I saw of it.
So why didn't you post a new thread about it on June 22nd? C'mon man.
I didn't want to steal someone else's thunder.
As often as I reload my recruiting bookmarks, I'm surprised to have missed it.
A little off-topic however what is this Roll Damn Tide thing that everyone keeps talking about? I would love an explaination of what happened, something do with him getting banned and then coming back as Wolverineinabag? Help....
Really appreciate it, it was a serious question. Do you want me to start a new topic on the MGoBoard for this?
