LSU 2017 defensive line commit Neil Farrell is arguably LSU's most versatile defensive line commit in this class for the Tigers. After committing to LSU in July, the Mobile area product focused on his senior season and released his midseason highlights that impressed.
The 6-4, 293-pound No. 1 defensive tackle in Alabama plays at defensive end in Murphy's 3-4 and will likely see himself pop back and forth between inside and outside depending on the scheme LSU is in. One thing's for sure and that's Farrell's raw strength will be a big addition to LSU's defensive line.
The Scout three-star displayed a good ability to bully opposing offensive linemen with a bull rush, but showed an impressive swim move. As he develops, his arsenal of passing rushing moves will only improve.
LSU wide receivers coach and Mobile area recruiter Dameyune Craig stopped by Farrell's game last week against Theodore (Ala.) to watch Farrell's squad pull in the 21-14 win.
Farrell is Scout's No. 30 defensive tackle in the 2017 class and No. 8 defensive tackle in the South. He recently scheduled an official visit to Michigan following his season and will take a visit to LSU this weekend for the Tigers game against Southern Miss.
