Farnlof has Big 12 favorite

Austin Farnlof took an unofficial visit to Arizona last weekend and liked everything about the Wildcats but said Kansas remains his favorite and the Jayhawks could be tough to beat if they offer.
"(Arizona) definitely has my interest but Kansas is at the top of my list," said Farnlof, who visited the Jayhawks a few weeks ago.
"The coaching staff really stood out. You can tell they know a lot and coach (Turner) Gill has his head on the right track. He knows what he's doing. I like the facilities. I'm from Kansas City so I like that about it. I like the town of Lawrence and the people there, the fans, we went to the basketball game and that was awesome.
"Coach Gill said they have three scholarship lefts for o-line and I fill the center position. He was saying all this stuff and that he's cautious about offering people and he wants to get to know people. He said they're going to send a coach to watch me in spring ball."
Kansas has the edge but since the 6-foot-1, 255-pound defensive end from Anthem (Ariz.) Boulder Creek doesn't have any offers yet he's certainly willing to listen to other programs.
Arizona made a good impression on him and Farnlof hopes to hear more during spring ball.
"It was a nice trip and the things they're going to do in the coming years seems pretty good," Farnlof said. "We went to the basketball game and that was pretty cool.
"I like coach (Mike) Stoops. He seems like he knows a lot and seems like he's going to stick with that program. I like the coaches, some are fairly new like their o-line coach and d-line coach are both in their first years.
"They didn't really say anything about an offer. All they said was they were going to come and watch me and (Boulder Creek wide receiver) Marquis Bundy for our spring practice."
