Farlow postponing trip to Nebraska

Defense is going to get a lot of attention for Nebraska in this year's class. It will be heavy in all areas when it comes to the positions. You might be able to look for three or four linebacker recruits and this one from Evanston (Ill.) might be one of them. He was supposed to be in Lincoln this coming weekend, but won't be able to make it.

Evanston (Ill) Township is off to a bit of a rough start and is just .500 after four games. Kendale Farlow though has been playing big and is really into about just every defensive statistical category imaginable.

"We're 2-2," Farlow said. "We just lost this past week. After four games I have about 50-some tackles, four sacks, three fumbles caused and two fumble recoveries."

Farlow is probably more of an outside linebacker prospect at 6-foot-0 and 185 pounds. He has the speed of a safety at the position, but sometimes the best athletes are asked to play a little out of position for the benefit of the team.

"I have been playing MIKE so far, but I am looking to move back to WILL. I know that colleges want me to play WILL when I get there."

Nebraska offered the linebacker prospect very early in the process and Farlow has an official visit set up to see Nebraska 9/22. However, it doesn't look like everything will be ready for him to make that trip this coming week.

"I just took my ACT. I don't think that I will be going to Nebraska this coming weekend. I think that I have to wait until my test scores come back. I should have them back in three weeks. I think that I did well on the test though."

The need to have a passing test score back is something that Nebraska is insisting on and really something that Farlow wants to have too before he really gets into recruiting.

"It's both. Nebraska wants me to have it and I don't want to have to worry about getting qualified. I want to get it out of the way."

Nebraska still looks to be a solid leader for Farlow despite holding four written offers. "I am getting attention from Illinois, Iowa State and a couple of other schools. I still have four offers from Nebraska, Iowa State, Central Michigan and Eastern Michigan."
