Alex Bars hits Big Ten schools for holiday 

November, 28, 2012
Alex Bars spent Thanksgiving with his family -- and perhaps his future one.

The ESPN Watch List offensive tackle from Nashville (Tenn.) Montgomery Bell Academy was in Ann Arbor for last week's holiday. He spent quality time with Michigan coaches and his brother, Blake Bars, who is a freshman offensive lineman for the Wolverines.

When asked if the trip was more about family or football, the younger Bars said, "It was for both. Great to see both the staff and my brother."
