Taft (Woodland Hills, CA)
(10.29.02) Needless to say, the athletic 6'1" combo guard from Taft High School is a hot prospect but he is refreshingly grounded and all the hype and attention aren't affecting his judgment. Farmar knows what he wants and his mother is there to back him up. Already, some impressive schools have been eliminated from consideration. Of the dozens upon dozens of schools recruiting Jordan, only a select handful are receiving interest from the high school junior. Besides Gonzaga, prominently mentioned are Connecticut, Stanford and Kansas.

(08.01.02) Although the Pump team had contributions by many players, the story of the game was the floor play of 6'1 junior point guard (class of 2004) Jordan Farmar (Taft HS/Woodland Hills, CA).
Farmar controlled the game from beginning to end. He handled the ball against Long Island's full court pressure and found teammates for easy buckets on many 3-on-1 opportunities. He was also hitting his pull ups.
With Wright hobbling, the Panthers couldn't do anything against Farmar, who had an excellent summer and showed why he is a high major recruit and one of the nation's better point guard prospects.
