Farms Coming to AU Camp Despite Injury

Perry, Ga.—Six-foot-three, 304-pound offensive guard prospect Johnnie Farms has had a busy spring thus far and is making yet another trip this weekend.

"I've been to Georgia, Florida, Florida State, Tennessee, Alabama, Notre Dame and that's about it so far," Farms says. "I'm going to Auburn on Sunday for the Scout.com camp. I'm probably going with just a friend, that's it."

A three-star prospect and the fifth-ranked guard in the country per Scout's early rankings, Farms won't be able to show off his talents because of an recent injury.

"I'm not participating, I'm injured," he explains. "I've got a bad ankle. I twisted it. It just hurts every time it gets aggravated and I've got to get treatment on it. I hurt it playing basketball and it's all right, but I can't go full speed on it."

However, he adds he'll be should be all right be the time Perry High School starts its spring training. "We don't start that until May 12. I'll be okay for that."

Farms says that he's been to Auburn three times in the past and isn't sure if he'll do anything this time other than watching the camp. "I'm considering them," Farms says of the Tigers. "I just like the SEC."

Asked what will be a big factor in his decision, Farms responds, "A major thing is going to be the depth chart."

Farms claims an offer from Auburn and just about every other big program in the Southeast.
