"I am signing today with the U of L Cardinals," said Farley, who was accompanied by his mother.
Farley, who was the first 2004 recruit to commit to U of L in what has now become a recruiting class widely regarded as one of the top three incoming classes next fall, realized a dream to stay at home and play for the hometown Cardinals.
"I'm honored to be one of Coach Pitino's top recruits in the state," continued Farley. "It's a really big honor to go in next year knowing that we are going to be one of the top recruiting classes in the nation."
Farley average 10.1 points, 8.2 rebounds and had 96 blocked shots as a junior in 2002-03. Much bigger things are expected from Farley this season.
"Coach Pitino is pretty much the same as our program," Farley said. "They like to run and we run and their guards play about the same way."
After an off season of drinking protein shakes and heavy weight lifting, Farley is now up to 215 pounds and is ready to be one of the top players in the state this year.
