Securing his newest recruit, Miami coach Larry Coker spent some time on the North Shore campus before his in-home visit with tight end Dajleon Farr this afternoon.
Coker and tight ends coach Mario Cristobal traded high school war stories with North Shore coach David Aymond as assistant coaches and underclassmen peered through the coach's office window to catch a glimpse of the U's coaches.
Farr, who committed to LSU in late November, changed his commitment as rumors ran wild about Nick Saban's departure. An official visit to Miami didn't hurt either.
"It was tight," Farr said of his visit. His mother attended the official visit with him.
The high school coverboy seems solid with Miami commitment and was getting some tips from Coker on how to get prepared for his arrival in Coral Gables, Fla.
"We are going to need to you to come in ready," Farr said Coker told him. "It's Ben Olson and you at tight end. We need you ready for Labor Day against Florida State."
Farr said he's ready for the challenge.
