His uncle Lamont Cain played for the University in the early 1990's and his father Nathaniel Cain was also a UM defensive back in the mid 1970's.
"I've heard nothing but positive things about Miami. They have a lovely campus; the city itself is a big landmark. I feel like there's a lot of life outside of the school," said Farrar.
"They have a reputation for getting some of the top players in the nation to go to Florida," said Farrar.
For now, Farrar (6-1/195) is focused on his upcoming senior season.
"It's an amazing feeling. Every since I was a freshman this is what I've been working for. I've been blessed to have had the opportunity to play with phenomenal athletes who later went on to attend big schools around the nation," said Farrar.
Farrar, who was offered by Miami back in the spring, visited Cal recently and plans to visit Virginia for their homecoming weekend.
