Alex Bars has another offer in hand

By Dave Hooker

Alex Bars has another offer to consider.

The ESPN Watch List offensive tackle from Nashville Montgomery Bell said coaches from South Carolina visited his school and offered him a scholarship this week. The 6-foot-6, 280-pound junior has scholarship offers from five other SEC schools: Kentucky, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt and Tennessee.

Bars said he's willing to stay in the south to play college football. That would be a departure for his family. He has one brother that plays at Penn State and another that plays at Michigan. Alex has offers from both schools as well as a handful of others. He frequently visited the two campuses last fall.
