Mark Farris of Pittsburgh, PA is unanimously considered to be one of the best offensive line prospects in the country. Will he take an official visit to Penn State?

Position: OL / DT
Height: 6'6"
Weight: 280 pounds
40-yard dash: 5.0
Bench Press: 375 pounds

Mark is ranked #10 on TheInsiders.com top high school football prospects list.

"I have official visits set up for Pitt and Miami," Mark said.  "Pitt will be December 8 and Miami will be December 15.

"I'm just going to wait until after my Miami visit to set up the other visits.

"Penn State, Florida, Michigan State and Michigan are the other teams I'm considering.  I'll visit Penn State for sure."

What does he like about Penn State?

"It's sort of close to home.  It's a good school with nice facilities and nice coaches."

Although he mentioned that one reason he likes Penn State is that they are close to home, he later indicated that distance to a prospective school is not that important to him.

"No, not really, it's not really a factor."

Mark grew up a Penn State fan, but does not think that will impact his decision.

Mark is friends with Penn State freshman tight end Andrew Richardson, who was Mark's teammate last year at North Hills High.

Farris visited Penn State unofficially this year for the game against Ohio State, Joe Paterno's record-breaking 324th victory.  He also visited Pitt for the Panther's game against Miami.
