Will Farrar checks in from Richmond (Texas) Travis High School. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound tackle is looking at a host of schools including LSU, Michigan State, Texas and LSU at this time. He holds offers from all four schools as the evaluation period comes to a close.
“Things that have surprised me about the recruiting process is how much effort goes into it,” Will Farrar said. “Everybody only sees the glory of it, but they don't know how much time and effort goes into it from coaches and recruit standpoint.”
Farrar is the No 5 ranked tackle prospect in the state of Texas, and for good reason.
“Pros: I finish plays, I have a high motor, I am nasty on the field, and I am going to be the strongest and most athletic lineman on the field,” Farrar said. “Things I need to work on: footwork and technique (so does every offensive lineman).
Farrar has enjoyed the recruiting process and will take his time before he makes a final decision.
“I like spending time with the players and seeing how the people on campus are,” Farrar said. “I think that the more time I spend there, the more of a feel I get. I am also looking forward to my official visits. I am going to see some places this summer, but I'm not sure where yet.”
Farrar is a potentially position-versatile offensive line prospect with the requisite size to play tackle or guard at the high-major level. Played right tackle as a junior for high school team. Big, burly lineman who is a hand full in the run game. Consistently finishes blocks. Plays with a bit of a mean streak. Solid upper-body technique in pass pro. Can improve lateral mobility and overall flexibility. Sometimes bends at waist rather than knees, but usually plays with good leverage, especially for a 6-5+ prospect. Well-rounded player with high ceiling as a pass-blocker who will play at the P5 level. - Gabe Brooks
