The Player Speaks: RRS’s Matt Clare talked to Farrar, who was visiting this weekend at Texas Tech and had previously committed to UCLA before opening things up during the spring:

“Well, I have always had a great relationship with Coach Hays since the end of my freshman year, the beginning of my sophomore year,” Farrar said. “After I committed to UCLA, we didn’t talk as much but I reached back out to him after reopening things and he welcomed me with open arms. Nothing really changed about our relationship, we picked up right where we left off.

“I always had love for Texas Tech, and as this recruiting process developed I really started to see people’s true colors and they were the only program that stayed true to me throughout the process.”

Scouting Report: I think that Farrar looks more like a guard than a tackle. He’s more of a mauler and physically, he looks like he’s ready to go right now. Offensively, he likes to maul players and he’s very good at it. Very aggressive in how he plays the offensive line. He may not have the mobility like Verhulst and Weaver, but he’s already got the size and power. If he gets a little tangled up with his footwork, he just powers through and uses his hands really well to push the defender out of the way. With Farrar and Jack Anderson at the interior . . . look out.
