Hurst (TX) L.D. Bell running back Kenny Farrow became the newest member of Colorado's 2011…
Farrow firm despite coaching change?
The University of Colorado announced today that they had fired former head coach Dan Hawkins after a 19-39 record during his time at Boulder. One of the top recruits in the Buffs 2011 recruiting class is Hurst (TX) L.D. Bell running back Kenny Farrow. The changing of a head coach might make most recruits second-guess their commitment to a university, but Farrow is still staying firm to the Buffs. "I'm still committed to Colorado. I talked to some of the coaches today. I really liked the school before I met coach Hawkins and I'm really excited about playing in the new Pac-12. Also, my relationship is mostly with coach Hagan (running backs coach) and I think he will still be on the staff when it's all said and done," said Farrow. The three-star running back admitted that Hawkins being fired didn't necessarily catch him and his family by surprise and that they considered the possibility of him being let go before he decided to commit. "I mean no offense to coach Hawkins but my parents and I knew that this was a possibility down the road and we knew to focus on the school and the players on the team. It's unfortunate that he was let go, but I feel like it's better that it happened now instead of like two years into my college career." Farrow says that there is a possibility he might take official visits to other schools besides Colorado, but he first needs to speak with the Buffs coaching staff about the new changes. "There could be a possibility of my taking some visits to some schools down the road, but my main priority is speaking with coach Hagan and making sure everything is sorted out in Boulder." Farrow also holds scholarship offers from Houston, Tulsa and Utah. He has racked up 973 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns on the season. L.D. Bell faces Cedar Hill this Friday in the first round of the playoffs.
