San Diego (Calif.) Henry offensive tackle Brian Farley landed his first offer and only offer last…
Farley Hoping for Big Season
Brian Farley, the 6-foot-8, 285-pound two-star offensive tackle from Henry Senior High School in San Diego, Calif., still has a lone offer from Maryland but is garnering interest from California (no offer) and UCLA (no offer). He still favors all three with no leader. "I don't have a leader out of my top three, but if I had to make a choice right now it would be either Cal or Maryland," Farley said. "Both UCLA and Cal are waiting to offer and want to see some film on me from the upcoming season. A big reason for that is to see how I've recovered from knee surgery. As far as the rest of the schools in my top five go, I'm still deciding." Farley tore his left ACL during a game last November, but says he's in good shape despite the serious injury. "The knee is feeling good and it's a little sore after practice, but there's no real instability with it," he said. With Maryland in the hunt, Farley feels he's got support from the one school that extended him a solid offer. "Maryland offered me before I tore my ACL, and they also want to see how I've recovered before they really start going after me," he said. "I like the school because I've got some family in the area as my brother goes to the Naval Academy in Annapolis. But they haven't really talked with me in a couple of weeks." "Cal has some great facilities and the program they have is great along with the coaches," Farley said. "I also know someone who goes there that I used to play against who was on Cathedral Catholic here in San Diego. So it would be cool to go there because I know someone. I also get some emails from the offensive line coach at Cal a lot." "And the coaches at UCLA are in touch with me a lot just mainly through mail notifying me on what their practice dates are," he said. "Ultimately, I'm looking at what a school has to offer other than football, like what kind of majors they have, if I like the campus – stuff like that." Farley is also a lights-out defender when he takes the field to play lacrosse each spring, and has considered playing the sport at the next level. "If I got some better offers for lacrosse I'd look to do that," he said. "And if I got some more offers for football I'd look into see if I could play both sports. I was out at a recruiting event in July for lacrosse at Sonoma State and will be going to another recruiting event for the sport this winter." Farley said he camped at UCLA, Maryland and San Diego State in June. Henry Senior High School plays Point Loma at home on Sept. 11 in its first game of the season. Farley reports a 3.0 GPA and a 1760 on the SAT. "I probably won't retake the test, but have thought about it just to see if I can get a higher score."
