Three-star running back talks with SMU

Things were going great for three-star L.D. Bell running back Kenny Farrow last season, before he injured his ankle that sidelined the running back for multiple games. It has hurt the junior's recruiting, but SMU is still showing interest. Come inside to see what his thoughts are!

Things were going great for three-star L.D. Bell running back Kenny Farrow last season, before he injured his ankle that sidelined the running back for multiple games. It has hurt the junior's recruiting, but Farrow is confident that it should pick up during his senior year.

While Farrow might not have many schools recruiting him at this point, the quality is there. Currently SMU, Utah, Houston, and Kansas State are showing interest, with Houston offering the 5'10, 195 pound running back.

"Right now, I'm pretty wide open. So whoever talks to me, I'm interested in them and want to learn about them," said Farrow to PonyStampede.com. "Missing some games last season really hurt my recruiting. My senior season I want to see what I can get."

Farrow has seen a jump in his recruiting after the SMU coaches meetings two weeks ago.

"I actually just talked to them today," said Farrow last Thursday. "They haven't offered, but told me to come down there as soon as I could. They want me to check out the campus and stuff....I'm definitely going to go up there and talk to them soon. I went up there for a five-star academy and I saw the stadium. Everything looked pretty nice."

On a 127 carries last season, Farrow ran for 622 yards and six touchdowns. As a sophomore, he ran for over 1300 yards and 16 scores.

Farrow is teammates with quarterback James Mauro and defensive back Kenny Buyers, both players the Mustangs have also showed interest in.

"We have talked about all of us going to the same school, it's not the top priority, but we have definitely talked about it," said Farrow.

So what is Farrow looking for in his college of choice?

"I don't want to be in an offense where they pass all the time. I can and don't mind running out of the spread. That is what we run at my school and it definitely opens up a lot of stuff."

PonyStampede.com will follow Farrow's recruiting very closely over the next couple of months and let fans know if anything breaks.
