His film is making rounds and he's quickly becoming one of the hottest targets in Houston. His name is Tarence Farmer and he's from Houston St. Pius.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder has been getting consistent mail from schools like Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Central Florida. Well, his first offer came in earlier this week and now other teams have started to get involved with him.
"Oklahoma State personally called me and told me I had a full ride scholarship," Farmer, who earned all-district honors as a sophomore and a junior, said. "I was really excited to hear about that. Oklahoma State has been recruiting me really hard the past few weeks."
The new team that is starting to send more stuff is Texas.
"I found out that UT is looking pretty hard at me from my coach," Farmer said.
Farmer does have good bloodlines and his tape is quite impressive. He is the younger brother of former Arizona and NFL running back Clarence Farmer. He had 42 receptions for 730 yards as a junior, but he's mainly being recruited as a safety prospect. That's where he posted five interceptions as a junior.
"I'd put Terrance up against anyone on the city of Houston," St. Pius coach Robin Kirk said. "He has a good sense about him and is tremendously physical."
