Pell City lineman likes Bama

A powerful two-way lineman, Pell City's Jeff Farr has been the anchor on his team's front wall since his freshman year.

Farr (6-3, 300, 5.40) has tremendous versatility along the line of scrimmage. During his career he has played defensive tackle, offensive guard, and offensive tackle. Farr has the frame and low center of gravity that could allow him to play center, but most scouts are recruiting him at guard.

The pride of Pell City High School, Jeff Farr is a naturally powerful athlete. Right now he's working hard to lower his 40-yard-dash time.

Farr can play any of several line positions.

A powerful run blocker, Farr has developed his pass blocking skills as well, building himself into one of the state's elite line prospects. Following last season he was selected to the All County, All State, and Birmingham News Super All Metro Teams.

Farr began his varsity career as a freshman defensive tackle, but he became a two way starter as a sophomore. His junior year, he moved to offensive tackle and it took him roughly four games to get the appropriate footwork down necessary to be an effective pass protector.

His game really took off as a junior and he is looking forward to a banner senior year.

The lineman has camped at Alabama (every year since 1998), Auburn, and plans to attend the Nike camp this summer (at Auburn). He lists Alabama, Auburn, and LSU as top three with the Tide as his favorite.

With his football playing brother, Andrew, Jeff Farr was an unofficial visitor to the Tide's recent A-Day scrimmage.

Farr has a 23-inch vertical jump. He bench presses 360 pounds, and squats 450. In the classroom Farr sports a 3.0 GPA and has scored 17 on the ACT, so qualifying should not be a concern.
