DajLeon Farr, TE, 6-5, 237, 4.62 GALENA PARK, TEXAS (NORTH SHORE HS):
JH: You are ranked a the No. 1 player in Texas and the top tight end in the country according to many scouting services. What do you think of those honors?
DF: "I think it is great and I work hard to try to earn that status. I am not trying to be just a numbers guy because I work hard for us to win, but if people recognize me as a good player then I am very proud about that."
JH: You didn't get a chance to catch the ball much last year, but on your film highlights it looks like you get into the blocking aspect of it pretty well don't you?
DF: "Blocking is all part of the game. You can't get the ball thrown to you all the time, so blocking is the other aspect of the game for a tight end. I can't say that is the most enjoyable aspect of the game for me, but I know that my team needs me to block and block well so that is what I am going to do."
JH: Is you team going to throw you the ball more this year?
DF: "I think I am going to be more involved in the passing game. The coaches have put in more passing plays for me, so I am pretty sure that I am going to get more opportunities to catch the ball."
JH: Have you made any trips lately or gone to any camps?
DF: "No sir, I sure haven't. I am in summer school right now just trying to get my English class out of the way for next so that I can get out of school earlier in the day."
JH: What is going on in recruiting at this point? Have you started to narrow down you list of schools?
DF: "I still like everybody at this point. I really don't have a top school list right now. I still talk to everybody."
JH: What are your thoughts on Oklahoma?
DF: "It is possible because I am taking a hard look at everyone. That is why this process is taking so much time for me because I am still evaluating every school at this point. I still like Oklahoma, and in talking with Coach (Kevin) Sumlin he has explained to me that they are going to use the tight end more in their offense and he is going to be on the field more. Oklahoma is a possibility for me, especially if I can watch a couple of their games and see that they are using the tight end more."
RECRUITING: Is Farr the best in Texas?
