Offensive Lineman Enjoys Auburn Visit

One of the South's most heavily recruited linemen talks about a recent unofficial visit to Auburn.

Perry, Ga.--Ranked as a four-star prospect and the number six offensive guard in the nation by Scout.com, Johnnie Farms has had no shortage of recruiting attention since the last signing day.

At 6-2, 280 with the size, strength and speed to be a standout on the next level, Farms is considered by many as one of the top interior lineman in the South this year. Because of that he's been deluged with offers from around the country and while he says he has no intention of trimming his list or making a commitment until after he takes his official visits, Farms has made several unofficial visits in recent weeks.

Just last week he made on of those to check out the Auburn Tigers.

Visiting Auburn on Friday afternoon along with several family members, Farms says he spent about three hours on the campus with offensive line coach Hugh Nall as well as several of the current offensive linemen. Farms says it was a good chance for him to get a feel for the Auburn program.

"The visit went great," Farms tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "It was nice. There were a lot of things that stood out to me. The team was cool. The coaching staff stood out as well as the team chaplain (Chette Williams)."

Currently holding 38 offers, Farms has used his summer wisely as he's taken several trips to some of his favorites to get a closer look. He says recently he's been to three schools in addition to Auburn.

"I went to UCF (Central Florida) last week," Farms says. "I've also gone to South Carolina and Alabama."

Among the other schools that have offered include Florida, Notre Dame, Georgia, LSU, Tennessee, Maryland, North Carolina and Clemson.
