Big 12 offer next for Farmer

The Kansas Jayhawks are the latest to have entered the Tarence Farmer fray.
Farmer (6-foot-1, 180 pounds) has had an interesting summer. He was thought to have transferred to Yates High School, but remains at St. Pius. He has participated in seven-on-seven and has been working out on and off campus. He has also been checking his mailbox for offers.
"Kansas was the last to offer me," Farmer said. "I am really getting recruited hard right now by Oklahoma State, Tennessee, Ohio State and Oklahoma. Only the Cowboys and Vols have offered so far."
Farmer is not opposed to leaving the state for a national program. His brother, Clarence Farmer, left Houston for the University of Arizona more than five years ago.
"I would go as far as Ohio State," Farmer said. "I really like what they are saying – I could be their next Teddy Ginn. I also like Tennessee and the others. I am kind of waiting on Miami to see what they are going to do. They are my number one right now."
Having a brother who played Division I football, Farmer has a realistic view of how the college game is played.
"I'm not saying I'm going to come in and start right away," he said. "I'd like to learn the system my first year and start seeing the field in my second season. I'm pretty versatile, so I think that helps my cause."
