Wisconsin in the running for elite TE

A pass-catching tight end can really spice up an offense. Florida experienced a lot of success with Ben Troupe, as did Miami with Kellen Winslow Jr. So there's no question that teams across the nation will be drooling over DajLeon Farr of Galena Park, Texas.


Just by taking a look at DajLeon Farr, one realizes that this is no ordinary tight end. Farr is 6-foot-6, 240 pounds, and certainly has the frame to put on more bulk. What makes him special though may be his ability to stretch the field in the passing game. Farr runs his 40-yard dash in the 4.5-second range, and has big-play ability.

Despite only catching seven balls last season, Farr managed to gain 166 yards for an eye-popping 23.7 yards per catch. Farr is no slouch in the blocking game either, as he used his huge frame to protect 2004 recruit Robbie Reid (Oklahoma State). Farr was key in helping the Mustangs to a perfect 15-0 season, ending in a No. 5 ranking according to USA Today.

Farr has an offer list that seems surreal. The early favorite for the top tight end in the nation, and top player in Wisconsin, and Oklahoma State, among others. The Volunteers also have offered.

Farr already is looking for a few things in his future school. "I want to feel like I'm at home and like I'm welcome," Farr said. "I'll also look at the education and playing time."
