Four-star tight end Ethan Farmer is getting closer to setting official visits. In fact, the Tabor City (N.C.) South Columbus prospect has one school in mind for an official visit.
"I have one visit so far, I'm trying to set something up with North Carolina in December or January," he said. "All the schools are trying to set up visits with me during those times."
In the meantime, Farmer has an idea who else may be in the hunt for trips.
"I'm definitely looking at Clemson, Auburn, Alabama, Duke, Tennessee and NC State as other schools to possibly visit," he said. "I've been watching all of them and they impress me."
With visits coming, what does Farmer want to see?
"I just want to see what it's like," he said. "I want to visit all the campuses and see what the atmosphere is like and want to know what the academic program is all about. I want a team that is going to win a national championship."
Visits are tough for Farmer so far as he is trying to fit them in around basketball.
The football season wrapped up a few weeks back for Farmer and South Columbus.
"It was kind of a disappointing senior year," he said. "It was a good year for me and I think I left everything out on the field. I think I did my part.
"I improved in a bunch of areas, running a lot more and catching the ball better and breaking tackles. It was a good experience."
Farmer will get one last chance to prove himself coming up in the Shrine Bowl in December.
"I'm glad I get to play in the Shrine Bowl," he said. "It's my last chance ever playing high school football and I just want to remember it."
