Farrar plans a visit

Jeff Farrar has plenty of offers, but only has one visit planned for the summer. Read on to find out where he will be taking an unofficial to in July and more.

For some, the recruiting process is a wild ride. For Upland (Ca.) athlete Jeff Farrar, the recruiting process has been something that he takes slowly and carefully.

"My recruitment has been okay," Farrar said. "I've been going about it day-by-day. I talk to coaches all the time and I'm taking my time.

"I talk to all the schools that have offered me pretty evenly. I talk to each school just about every day or every other day."

Farrar, who plays wide receiver in addition to multiple spots in the secondary, has had plenty of contact with the Arizona Wildcats. His lead recruiter from Tucson is Offensive Line Coach Jim Michalczik.

"Down at Arizona, I talk to Coach Jim and Coach Rich Rodriguez," he said. "I talk to some other people down there, too.

When they talk, it is often to get a feel for each other and build a relationship. Between the two, they have talked about everything from school to family and in between.

"He likes to check in on me and see how life is with me besides football," Farrar said of Michalczik. "He's just checking bases and it's fun to talk to him."

The athlete only has one visit planned for the summer and it is to Arizona. Farrar wants to visit the campus, see the city, and take in the new end zone that will be completed in July.

"I'll be down to see Arizona in July for an unofficial," Farrar said. "They have the new building being opened on July 26th or 27th. I really want to check that out, so I am planning on being down there for when it opens."

Even before his visit, the rising senior is doing his research. So far, he has great things to say about the Wildcats.

"It's such a great school," he said. "I love the coaching staff. They are really good coaches and they're just a really well put together team. They will have the new facilities done in July when I'm down there. I feel like there are a lot of good things going on at Arizona."

For Farrar, he is looking for the best place to be while during his time in college. The athlete wants to go to s good football program, but also wants to be in a place that is going to have a good community behind him.

"I'm looking at the location that is around the school outside of football," he said. "I want a location that's good for me to be in for the next three or four years.

"I want a dedicated coaching staff that has been there for a couple years or that has plans to stay and build a dynasty. I just want a school that fits me overall with academics and football."

Even though he only has one visit planned, Farrar is still keeping his options open and doesn't plan on deciding on a college any time soon.

"I don't have a top five right now," he said. "I am just taking everything in right now. I will probably have a top five right before the official visit season starts, because that way I will know which five schools to visit.

"I want to take all my visits before I make my decision. I'm just not quite sure which schools I'll visit yet. Those five schools that I visit will be the schools that I roll with."

Over the summer, Farrar will keep a low profile, but will be working on getting better. One area that he wants to work on is an area that will definitely impress the Wildcat coaches.

"I don't plan on going to any camps or anything," Farrar said. "I am just going to be working out with my team and trying to improve.

"You can always get faster. I can always improve on my speed."
