"Other than that, I know I'm going to check out a couple of games. I don't know which ones yet," South Columbus (N.C.) standout Ethan Farmer said.
"When Clemson plays Coastal, I'll definitely be there."
The main thing he wants to see from Clemson is a win. Farmer recently told CUTigers.com that he also looks forward to meeting with the Dabo Swinney and the Clemson coaching staff.
In what will be his first experience in Death Valley, Farmer said he's looking forward to seeing the orange and purple rub Howard's Rock and run down the hill. Familiar with the traditions, he's excited about taking it all in person.
"I want to see the fans and the atmosphere there. I know it's great," he said.
A recent offer from North Carolina was an exciting one to receive for the lifelong Tar Heel fan.
"I feel kind of blessed in a way because I was raised a Carolina fan," Farmer said.
The offer might push North Carolina to the top one day, but for now, he's keeping a list of top seven schools. None hold in preference over the others at this point. Along with Clemson and North Carolina, NC State, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Penn State and Tennessee are his top seven.
Farmer projects at either defensive tackle or tight end at the next level though he's got no preference for one over another.
"It really doesn't matter. I just want to play," he said.
It's hard for him to say which one he thinks he's better at right now, but Farmer gave the edge to tight end.
As a junior, Farmer lined up at tight end and defensive end for South Columbus, totaling 15 catches for 275 yards and three scores while adding 55 tackles defensively.
South Columbus begins its 2009 season Friday night and Farmer is very excited about starting his senior season.
"We have a lot of seniors coming back. It's probably the biggest senior group we've had at South Columbus," he said. "I'm very happy about (Friday)."
Not only will Farmer play a big role on the field, making plays from both sides of the ball, but he'll continue being a vocal leader.
"My second biggest role is getting everybody hyped up before the game," he said.
Farmer's biggest role: helping bring a state championship to South Columbus.
He is rated with three stars as the No. 57 defensive tackle prospect in 2010 by Scout.com.
