Alex Bars is taking the weekend off from visiting prospective colleges. The offensive lineman from Nashville (Tenn.) Montgomery Bell Academy plans to be back on the road next week, the junior told ESPN on Friday.
Bars is leaning towards a trip to Purdue to see the Boilermakers host Penn State. His eldest brother, Brad Bars, is a junior defensive lineman for the Nittany Lions.
Alex Bars has already visited Michigan and Notre Dame. Both have ties to the Bars family. Bars' brother, Blake Bars, is a freshman offensive lineman for Michigan. Alex Bars' father attended Notre Dame.
Bars said he will definitely visit Penn State, Alabama and Vanderbilt this season. In addition to Ohio State and Michigan, Bars has scholarship offers from Indiana, Duke, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss and Mississippi State.
