“(Defensive line coach Shaun Nua) made me feel like family,” Barrs told Biggins. “We have many of the same values. He really appealed to my parents when he started our meeting talking about the importance of family and how much his own family means to him.”
He had interest from Auburn, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Indiana and Fresno State.
The Murrieta Mesa High School product in Murietta, Calif., said USC was his dream school growing up.
Barrs played four years at Arizona, this past season recording a career-best 39 tackles with 4.5 tackles for loss. He started in all 12 games.
The 6-foot-3, 295-pound lineman made the All-Pac-12 Second Team in 2021, when he piled up 33 tackles, five sacks and eight tackles for loss.
