"[Qualifying] gets this huge burden off my chest. It really hurt me when I found out that I wasn't qualified. Now that I'm qualified – I knew I could do it."
Farms, a 6-foot-2, 306-pound offensive guard, signed with UNC last February. However after failing to qualify coming out of Perry (Ga.) High School, he enrolled at Chatham (Va.) Hargrave Military Academy.
Farms silenced all rumors that say he isn't firm to UNC.
"I'm staying with the Tar Heels," Farms said.
Farms isn't aware which, if any, schools have inquired about him. He said he instructed Robert Prunty, Hargrave's head football coach, to tell other schools that he's off the market.
"I told [Prunty], I'm a Tar Heel and I'm staying with the Tar Heels," Farms said. "[I told him] if another recruiter comes in, don't say anything."
Farms will officially visit UNC the weekend of Nov. 14 when the Tar Heels host Miami. Teammates and fellow UNC commitments D.J. Bunn and J.R. Rhodes will also take their official that weekend. Farms says he's still attempting to persuade Ego Ferguson, a major UNC target, to officially visit that same weekend.
