Farmer stays local with newest offer

Houston St. Pius safety Tarence Farmer has added another offer to his list. This time the 6-foot-1, 185-pounder stays in his own backyard for the newest addition to his resume.
"Houston called and offered me a scholarship on Tuesday," Farmer, a two-time all-district selection, said. "They called me up and said I have a full ride. "It's close to home, so I like Houston, but they're not at the top of my list at this point."
At the top remain teams like Oklahoma State and Tennessee, who have also offered him a scholarship. He said Miami remains one of his dream schools, but other schools like Nebraska and Ohio State could also become players.
"Both recruiters from Nebraska and Ohio State called this week and told me that both from their stand point would give me a scholarship but they had to go over it with the head coach," Farmer said. "Those two would be other schools that would be neat to get offers from."
Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M and UCF are other schools that have been either in contact on the phone or in the mail during the month of May.
Farmer had 42 receptions for 730 yards and nine scores in 2005. As a safety he had five interceptions. He plans on camping at LSU and could make an unofficial visit to Oklahoma some time this summer, since he has a sister attending school in Norman.
