Farmar back from Florida, decision could follow

Jordan Farmar has four schools on his list and has taken visits, both official and unofficial, to each. Farmar tripped to Florida this weekend and he may now have enough information to make a decision. Farmar told <I>Cat Tracks</I> about his visit to Gainesville and how it may affect his future.

"I've seen everywhere I am considering," Jordan Farmar said. "I may actually make a decision by the end of the week. I'm not in a rush but if it feels right I'll go ahead and commit."

Farmar, the top point guard on the West Coast, would not tip his hand about a leader. He insists he is considering all four teams and loved all four visits.

The trip to Florida was a good one, but was it good enough to tip the scales in the Gators' favor?

"It went great," Farmar said. "It was pretty much what I expected. They are pretty high up there. I don't know if it changed their status."

Farmar met with players and coaches and soaked up the atmosphere of a true American college town.

"It's real cool," Farmar said. "It's a cool college town. It has a real supportive atmosphere for student athletes. It was real hot there, but it's real hot in Arizona and it doesn't really bother me."

The Taft High School standout has also given great consideration to hometown UCLA and new head coach Ben Howland. He made an unofficial visit there last weekend and came away impressed with the direction that the program is taking.

"It was a good visit also," Farmar confessed. "I like Coach Howland. He told me how I'd fit in at UCLA and how much they want to build around me and this class."

Farmar has also made unofficial visits to Gonzaga and Arizona. Farmar and his mother visited Gonzaga and came away very impressed with the Big West school. When Jordan and his father stopped in Tucson not only did he get to meet the current Wildcats, but he met potential future teammates Ndudi Ebi, Jawann McClellan and Nic Wise.

At this time any one of these four schools could be receiving good news by the end of the week. One school will get an excellent point guard and the other three will still be looking for a floor general.
