"I have officially committed to The University of Notre Dame! #playlikeachampiontoday," he tweeted.

Bars, a Nashville (TN) product, is a four-star prospect the No. 9 overall player at his position for the class of 2014 (247Sports). His size and strength alone make him a top-tier recruit, but his unique athleticism and versatility puts him above the pack as a lineman.

Many figured that Bars would join his brother Blake--also an offensive tackle--at Michigan. All nine Crystal Ball experts at 247Sports predicted that he would pledge with the Wolverines, especially after taking back-to-back visits in Ann Arbor during a two-week timespan.

Bars also held offers from Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State, South Carolina and Stanford. He becomes the 10th member of Brian Kelly's recruiting class for '14.
