Football: Anthony Barr grows to 6-5

August 12, 2010 |  9:00 am

Los Angeles Loyola used to list standout running back Anthony Barr at 6 feet 4. At UCLA, he's now listed at 6-5, 230 pounds, which is pretty shocking because most of the time when an athlete heads off to college and finally gets measured, the height shrinks.

It just shows what a unique athletic specimen Barr truly is. He's playing F-back, which is a combination of receiver, running back, tight end and blocker.

If Barr is healthy, there's no telling what he's going to be able to accomplish in college and beyond.
