Standout recruit Farmer said to favor USC
A tri-sport athlete â€” football, basketball and track and field â€” George Farmer is a talented high school athlete. More importantly to USC however, is that Farmer, a prized football recruit, is heavily favoring the Trojans in his college search.
At 6 feet 2 inches tall and 210 pounds, Farmer is currently a wide receiver for Junipero Serra High School in Gardena, Calif. and despite the recent troubles facing USC â€” including the postseason ban and decrease in athletic scholarhips â€” Farmer has reportedly said he is strongly considering the Trojans as an option for next year.
Farmerâ€™s high school football team, the Cavaliers, won the state title last year, going 15-0. As a junior that season, Farmer scored 12 touchdowns and had 41 catches for 891 yards, in addition to running for 116 yards and four touchdowns. He has also played a bit on defense for Serra, making him a viable option as a cornerback in college.
An announcement on his decision is expected in January.
