Barlow showed some awesome promise his sophomore year. He plays with an excellent base, really shows good flexibility in the hips and light feet when pass blocking. He is quick getting out his stance, and does an excellent job blocking players significantly bigger than him. He’s very quick out his stance. Has an edge to his game, and will block all the way until the whistle is blown. Barlow shows a ton of promise, in the next 6-12 months he can add some good weight and really ramp his recruitment, because from a skill stand point he shows a lot at both a pass blocker and run blocker. Interesting to see how adept he is as a pass blocker for a player his age, really eye-catching skill set for the 2020 recruit. Barlow is an obvious option caliber center, his background in Benedictine’s offense really shows that. He’s gained 15 lbs since last fall, and now nearing 250 lbs heading into his junior season – made some huge improvements in the weight room with over a 100 lbs. increase to his squat. He’s definitely a recruit to monitor this next year both on the field and measurement wise.
