Koa Farmer landed a major offer on Wednesday and now the Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame athlete has some serious thinking to do.
Penn State offered the four-star athlete, which isn't a major surprise because new coach James Franklin and his staff was heavily recruiting Farmer during their days at Vanderbilt.
Farmer said he's considering a trip to either Penn State or Vanderbilt on the weekend of Jan. 24 but there's a good possibility he could end up going to State College.
"I had track practice and I saw my phone and Coach (Ricky) Rahne wanted me to call him," Farmer said. "I texted him back and I said I hope it's good news. I called him back and we talked for a little bit and then I talked to Coach (Bob) Shoop, and he was the one who said I officially have an offer at Penn State and then I talked to Coach Franklin after that.
"I know the coaches want me to play safety for them and Coach Franklin wants me to be there as well. I kind of knew it would be coming. I just didn't know when it was coming."
This is by no means a done deal for Penn State, though. Farmer has been committed to California since October 2012 and is taking his official visit to Berkeley this weekend.
The Sherman Oaks Notre Dame star will then figure out his travel plans for the following weekend, and a trip to Washington in the last weekend of January is also being strongly considered.
Because of Franklin's involvement with Farmer during his time at Vanderbilt, there is a connection and Farmer seems highly interested in learning more about the Nittany Lions.
"It is a big program," Farmer said. "The stadium fits like 107,000. I'm excited to see the school. I know it's a big-time program so it should be fun."
After all his trips, Farmer said he's going to sit down with his family and make a final decision.
