TE/DL Ethan Farmer Profile
Clemson has pulled even with North Carolina for the signature of South Columbus High School High School jumbo-athlete Ethan Farmer, but he's still got an official visit to Chapel Hill scheduled in two weeks.
Originally scheduled for late October, the official visit this weekend allowed for the three-star prospect to be around several Clemson commits who'll sign with the Tigers as part of the 2010 recruiting class.
CUTigers caught up with Farmer on Sunday to see what he thought about the trip.
"It was a good experience," he said. "It's tied right now, neck and neck between (North Carolina and Clemson)."
Before heading back home to Tabor City, N.C., Farmer and his family met with Swinney.
"He talked to my family, talked about decisions and Clemson," Farmer said. "He said whenever I make my decision; just make sure I make the right choice."
Heading into the weekend, he wanted to know which position he'd play, if he was to end up at Clemson. Farmer said he was told that it would be either tight end or defensive end.
This weekend, he was hosted by Clemson defensive end Kourtnei Brown. It was the first time the two had met.
"We got along, just hung out at his place," Farmer said.
His favorite part of the trip was the time spent in the West Zone.
"It went really good, just talking to coach (Dabo) Swinney and all the coaches. Getting to see the West Zone and running down the hill, it was all great," Farmer said.
