Bruins hope to raise the Barr

There is a good argument that Todd Barr (6-3, 265, 4.8) from Lakewood, Calif., is the best defensive lineman on the west coast. He is definitely one of the most versatile as he could line up at a variety of positions along the defensive front.

"When schools come out, I don't pay a lot of attention," Barr said. "I don't mean to be disrespectful, but I'm trying to focus on the task at hand, which is my team."

"Spring ball is always a foundation for a great year," Barr said. "Like I've always told people that the process is more important than the results.
