Farrior Enjoys Meeting New Staff

Devin Farrior is a 3 star lineman who is committed to Southern Miss. The Wayne Co. stand-out had a very busy weekend. After playing in the Mississippi/ Alabama all-star game, he took a trip to Hattiesburg to meet the new staff. He talks about both in this interview with GoldenEaglePride.com.

Devin Farrior is a busy man these days.

After a great showing against some of the best athletes in the south in the Mississippi/ Alabama all-star week of practice and game, he made a quick Sunday trip to meet the new coaching staff.

The game was a chance for Farrior to show he can compete at the highest level.

"It was a great experience to be around great players like that," he said. "Saturday in the game was fun going against players who are going to D1 schools everywhere.

"There was a tackle that lined up on me who is going to Alabama, and he gave me the biggest challenge but I stepped up to it and blocked him most of the time."

After the full week of practice, he turned right around and made the quick trip to Hattiesburg for a Sunday visit with the new coaching staff.

"We got up Sunday morning and headed over there, we had lunch with Coach Monken and Coach Woz," he said. "We ate at Mugshots. Coach Perot came over as well, and I enjoyed meeting them.

"I was very comfortable with the three guys, and Coach Monken is going to be the offensive coordinator and I love the offense he runs at Oklahoma State.

"Coach Monken is bringing a great offense, and you can tell he has a passion for the game and for the players was very impressive."

His verbal commitment still stands with Southern Miss. He's still planning on coming and enrolling in January to participate in spring practice.

"It will benefit me a lot," he said. "To go in, get through some classes, settle in, and know my way around will give me a much better chance to play in the fall. I'm looking forward to it."
