    It might be completely unfair to Barr, but as soon as I saw UCLA, all I could think of was Bruce Davis.

    Is that how you pick out books to read....by their cover?

    Personally I think Barr should return to UCLA for his senior year. But he is a totally different type of athlete than Bruce Davis. Davis was limited. Barr has a much higher ceiling. If you look at guys like Aldon Smith I believe Barr's ceiling is somewhere near that. Same type of build and very similar athletically.
