Altrique Barlow
Offensive Line, Class of 2020
Bishop Sullivan, Virginia Beach, VA
6-4, 330

Most scouting services list Bishop Sulivan (Va.) three-star offensive lineman Altrique Barlow at 300 pounds. Earlier this year, however, he was approaching 350 pounds.           

That’s when Barlow decided he needed to get himself in better physical shape. He changed his diet, not eating as much, and worked harder during offseason training. Barlow,’s No. 10 offensive guard and No. 5 player in Virginia for 2020, reports he’s now down to 330 pounds. It’s an indication of the extra work he’s putting in, along with the digging he’s doing in his recruitment.           

“I feel lighter, more able to move on the field now,” Barlow said. “It’s definitely helped with my agility, being able to get off the ball and be dominant off the point of attack. That’s why I want to go to camps, so they can all see.”           

Barlow has five offers: Virginia Tech, Auburn, Charlotte and most recently, Georgia and Florida Atlantic. Like the changes he’s made physically, Barlow said he’s made a few changes in the way he looks at his recruitment.
