There is a very good argument that Gardena (Calif.) Serra class of 2011 wide receiver George Farmer (6-2, 200, 4.34) may the nation's best at his position in his class. He burst onto the scene during the camp circuit of 2008 when he was only a freshman. He camped with both UCLA and USC. He was promised offers by both schools. Since then he has received a total of 13 offers.
At the USC camp of 2008, Farmer ran a 4.34, which was the fastest time at the camp and he was only a freshman at the time.
According to Farmer, he has offers from every college in the Pac 10 and college football powers Florida, Oklahoma and Texas.

The reasons for such an impressive list of offers are many, but perhaps the main reason is he has an incredibly high ceiling that he has not come close to reaching. Believe it or not, Farmer is only 15 years old.
At any age, there aren't too many players who possess, Farmer's size and speed. He brings a lot to the table, plus he's an outstanding student, too, with his 3.5 GPA.
Farmer is planning on attending UCLA's one day camp this weekend and USC' Rising Stars Camp later in the month of June.
Though it is early Farmer is already looking at things he would like in a college.
"Right now I am looking to study engineering and a minor in sports agency," Farmer said. "I would also like to be a pilot, so there are a lot of courses I am looking at. I am looking for a college that will give me a great education and where I can excel on the field, too."
"I love the spread offense," Farmer said. "I love it. I can't go wrong with that. It opens everything up.
"Here at Serra we run a lot of the spread and it gives the receiver the chance to move around and showcase their skills," Farmer said. "That's what I'm good at."
Are there any schools that are sticking out for Farmer in the early stages?
"Right now it is a little too far in the future for me to think about that," Farmer said. "I am pretty open.
"I don't know too much about the recruiting process yet. It is all still pretty new to me. It is only really starting for me right now. I'm just going into my junior year, but I am getting a lot of advice here and there from my family and my coaches."
Was there a college that Farmer followed growing up?
"Growing up I followed USC because I have a close family friend Kenechi Udeze who played there," Farmer said. "He plays for Minnesota right now. We became really close when he dated my sister and became a mentor.
"I was just with Kenechi a month ago in Minnesota, so I followed USC and I followed the teams my dad played for."
Farmer has great bloodlines, his dad George Farmer played in the NFL for the Los Angeles Rams and the Miami Dolphins.
Will Farmer's relationship with Udeze help USC at all?
"Yes it does, because he tells me the ups and downs of the school," Farmer said. "He also tells me how many players they send to the NFL and that is a goal that I am trying to reach.
"Kenechi is helping me a lot, he tells me pick my choices wisely and what I need to do to accomplish my goals," Farmer said. "He helps me out a lot on that because he's been there and experienced it."
Does Farmer envision being an early commit or late?
"I hope to attend an all-star game and could make my announcement there so I will probably be a late commit," Farmer said. "I'm going to make sure that I pick the right school for me that I will really enjoy. So more than likely I will be a late commit.
"I plan on taking all five of my visits," Farmer said. "I'm not sure what those schools would be right now, but I plan on taking all five."
Farmer earned first-team all-league honors after hauling in 31 receptions for and seven touchdowns while averaging 16.9 yards per catch.
