Art Kehoe and UM is back in that state, this time recruiting two-way lineman and soon to be offensive guard Mark Farris from Pittsburgh.
Although Farris hasn't been officially measured at any camps this summer, I have watched him on tape and he's every bit of 6-foot-5. Farris says he goes around 280 right now.
Your current core GPA: 3.2
Your current test score: I scored a 1030 on the SAT
alk about your strenghths and weaknesses: I play both ways and run really well for a guy my size. My coaches have me at a 4.9.
Which schools called in May: A whole lot of them actually. Pitt, Penn State, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Miami, Florida, Virginia, and Northwestern.
Which schools have offered scholarships: Most of the schools I mentioned have offered.
What about Miami: They're one of the ones who have not offered yet. They called me in May and I am going to try to take an official visit there later in the year.
I understand your summer has been pretty busy: Yeah, I've been on unofficial visits to Pitt, Penn State, Ohio State, and Michigan. Those are all nice places with huge campuses. Starting next week, I will visit Michigan State, Notre Dame, Northwestern, Virginia, and maybe either Tennessee or Georgia Tech. I'm trying to see as many places I can before I decide on my official trips.
If you had to name five schools to visit officially right now, who would they be: Probably Pitt, Penn State, Michigan, Georgia Tech, and Notre Dame.
Farris is one of those kids that seems to have visited half the country just this summer. Usually that indicates an early commitment, usually sometime around the start of his senior season. However, if he does take official trips, and if one is offered by UM, I think he will definitely take it. The reason he mentioned the five schools without Miami when asked is probably because those are schools that have already offered him a scholarship. Actually, Miami and Michigan are the ones who have not yet. Whether or not he does get offered will probably depend on how confident the UM coaches feel about the south Florida tandem (Gilles and Pou) on top of Tatum. If we take a 4th lineman, it'll probably be an out of state kid, and Farris is one of those under consideration, even though a half dozen out of state OL have offered from UM and Farris doesn't yet.
