Farmer talks Utah vsit, cancels Washington

Notre Dame (Calif.) Sherman Oaks athlete Koa Famer visited Utah last weekend and was set to check out Washington this week but those plans are currently on hold.

Koa Farmer is a longtime California commit but always planned on taking his official visits. The talented two-way athlete took his first visit this past weekend to Utah.

"It was a really fun visit, I enjoyed it out there," Farmer said. "The whole trip was good but the biggest highlight for me was probably their medical program. I was really impressed by it and that's the area I want to study in college.

"Brandon Cox was my host and all the players and coaches were really cool with me. I was impressed with the family atmosphere and how well everyone gets along. I already had interest in Utah or I wouldn't have made the trip but after this visit, my interest is even higher now. I'm definitely going to give them a serious look."

Farmer had a trip lined up with Washington this coming weekend but that visit has been canceled.

"I talked to Coach Sirmon today and he said they were canceling all visits for the weekend," Farmer said. "Even without a head coach in place, I was still hoping to do the visit because I wanted to see the academic side of the things and just see what the school looked like.

"It makes sense though, they want me to wait and come back when they have a head coach and a staff in place. It would be cool if they just hired Justin Wilcox and kept the staff together. I'm sure they'll hire someone good and then I'll definitely give them a hard look."

Farmer said he still plans to take his visit to Cal in January and will also check out Vanderbilt as well.
