Jersey QB Has Heavy Duke Interest

Shakim Phillips is one of the top wide receiver prospects in the Northeast Region, but he wouldn't be there without his quarterback Danny Farley making it a point to get the ball in his hands. The Wayne, N.J., product is already hearing from some major programs and hopes to make a splash of his own in recruiting.

Danny Farley, a 6-foot-2, 202-pound signal caller from De Paul Catholic High School attended the All-American Combine in San Antonio, Texas in weeks ago and came away with the confidence that he can compete with some of the best young talent in the country at his position. If the schools he is hearing from early are any indication of where his recruiting will go, he's in great shape.

"I have been getting a lot of interest from LSU, Tennessee, Boston College and Duke," Farley offered. "I also just started talking with Coach Beck from California and get letters from Iowa, Rutgers and Michigan State pretty often."

"Duke, LSU and Boston College stick out the most right now, but that's because it's early and I don't know much about all of the other schools," Farley said. "I like the offenses that all three schools run which is a big reason why. I actually camped at BC two years ago and love it, we run the same offense at LSU and I went to Duke for their game against North Carolina and thought it was great down there. I've also been to Maryland and Rutgers on game day."

As a junior, Farley passed for over 1200 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also had 7 rushing touchdowns.

He currently carries a 3.0 core GPA and scored a 24 on his ACT.
