Farr one of LSU's most coveted prospects

The nation's No. 1 tight end is Dajleon Farr (6-5, 240, 4.62) of Galena Park (Texas) North Shore and he is one of LSU's most coveted prospects for the Class of 2005.

Nick Saban had the luxury of hosting Farr on the LSU campus for several unofficial visits in the past year but the big question is will he be able to get the Lone Star product down for an official visit?

"I've been there quite a few times and I think I've seen everything there is to see but the wining and dining," Farr told Tiger Rag. "I still might take one though because my mom wants to go on with me and we could drive over there."

LSU recruiting coordinator Travis Jones is handling the bulk of Farr's recruitment and he called the big tight end on Saturday to check and see how things were going.

Farr is getting the best sales pitch each coach has to offer but Jones has set himself apart from some of the competition.

"I like him (Jones)," Farr said. "He seems like a real down to earth person and he keeps it real. He seems like he tries to help people out and not just look out for himself."

The recruiting process has been crazy for Farr because he is such a hot commodity. However, six schools have his made his final cut and they are Oklahoma, Nebraska, Miami, USC, Florida and LSU. He said he is not ready to name a leader just yet but he does know what he will factor into his decision.

"It's going to be the feeling I get from the coaches and players," he said. "It's going to be the need and the want for me at my position. Whoever can give me the best chance of being a high draft pick (NFL) and that will utilize my skills. Those are the things I am looking for."

Does he think LSU can give him everything he is looking for?

"I think so," he said. "LSU does possess those qualities. They are not too deep on the depth chart and they throw a couple of balls to the tight ends."

LSU fans will have to wait a couple of more months before they find out about Farr's plans because he intends on announcing his choice at the U.S. Army All-Star game on Jan. 15.
