H.S. More on James Farrow | #44 CB | | Profile Virginia Tech Commitment List | Forums My Hotlist | Scout300 | Ask The Scouts Committed to: Where We've Seen Him: Game Tape, Highlight Tape, Camps (Michigan Showcase, NLA 7 on 7, Sound Mind Sound Body) Analysis: Farrow is a good football player. He is a nice sized kid for the cornerback spot, with solid speed, and all around athleticism. He shows the ability to play man coverage, using his length and speed to stay with receivers. He can work on his technique some, but he is a smart kid as well, who does a good job of reading routes and being in the right place at the right time. In college, I think he'll be best in cover two type schemes rather than playing on an island. On film, he does a great job of coming up and making tackles on short passes, something he would have to do in that type of coverage. What I also like about him is his attitude. He does not back down, and wants to go against the best. That will get him a long way come college. Verdict: His aggressive style, size and overall game make him a great fit for Tech. He's also an accomplished special teams player, which of course, will be welcomed in Blacksburg. He has a chance to be a very good college cornerback.
