Farrington to Visit State in December

DE Jameil Farrington and his close friend and teammate, LB Maurice Harris have attracted heavy attention from the NC State coaching staff. Read on for the latest on Farrington's visit plans and his thoughts on the Wolfpack.

Farrington to Visit State in December

Defensive lineman Jameil Farrington's list has been trimmed to three and the Pack is still in the hunt.

The 6-2, 235-pound prospect from Homestead, FL is being recruited as a defensive tackle by the NC State coaching staff and will visit Raleigh in the near future.

"I'm going to take officials to NC State and Auburn sometime in December," said Farrington. "We haven't set up the exact days we're going to be there though. I'm looking at both of those schools and Ole Miss. Those are the only schools I'm still listening to."

NC State and Auburn have both offered Farrington, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.8 seconds and has recorded nine sacks on the year. What does he like about each school?

"I really like the coaches at those schools. They've all made me feel real comfortable. I get the feeling that they're concerned about me beyond football, so that's been big for them.

"There's a lot I still have to learn about them before I make a decision though. I'm going to need to take my visits and find out things like players' graduation rates and what they have in place for athletes to get good grades. I'm going to be doing a lot of research from here on out."

Farrington plans on waiting until the week before Signing Day to announce his college destination. He and his teammate Maurice Harris, a three-star outside linebacker, have thought about the possibility of committing to a school as a packaged deal.

"We've talked about that," said Farrington. "NC State has offered both of us, and I know we're both interested in them. We'll see what happens though."
