When it comes to interior offensive line prospects from the South one of the very best is Johnnie Farms. Farms, now 6-3 and 304 pounds, hails from Perry (Ga.) High School. This four-star prospect projects as an offensive guard.
"I have worked hard this off-season to become more dynamic and explosive," Farms said. "I have also worked on my technique. I would grade myself pretty equal in pass pro and run blocking. I believe I finish well and I excel at drive blocking. I also know I just knock a lot of defenders down."
According to Farms he is sitting on almost two dozen scholarship offers. Right now he says things are open.
"I have 22 offers and I am completely open to everyone. Right now I like Alabama, Florida, Clemson, Georgia, Auburn, LSU, South Carolina and Tennessee.
"I love the (Crimson) Tide. That's my school. I love the coaches. Kirby (Smart) came by today and Alabama is just a school I really like.
"I know the Florida coaches to. It's a great location, they won a national championship recently and the campus is nice. Florida also seems like a school that wins in everything.
"Clemson is a nice school to. Like Alabama and Florida I like their coaches. I know some people that are going to school there. I also love their offense.
"Georgia is a nice place and I have been there a bunch. I love coach (Mark) Richt and I have a bunch of friends up there. It's (Athens) a place where I feel real comfortable.
"Tony Franklin (Auburn offensive coordinator) came by the school today. I don't know him that well but I know some of their other coaches. Auburn is a good school and it's close to home.
"I haven't been to LSU but I am hoping to get over there this summer. (Les) Miles has done a great job there and they just won it all.
"I talk with South Carolina a lot. I want to get over there soon. Columbia is a great place and it's a great location.
"I have a great respect for Tennessee and coach (Philip) Fulmer. We have talked on a few occasions and I really like him."
Farms has seen all those schools in person but LSU and South Carolina. That will change over the coming weeks.
"I am going to back to Georgia this summer. I will also go to Alabama, LSU, South Carolina, Florida and possibly Central Florida as well. There is no doubt that things have picked up. It will come down to the coaching staffs and playing time for me."
