Farrow hopes to impress

The recruiting process can be a waiting game, and Bleckley County defensive back Derrick Farrow is in the midst of it.

Farrow visited Athens for Georgia's Junior Day on January 28, and the home state team had plenty of things that impressed the sleeper prospect.

"It was a great visit," said Farrow. "I had a chance to spend a lot of time with the coaches and we saw the campus. We watched film and had some good food. It was a cool place."

Farrow has yet to receive that first offer, but he is already building strong relationships with the Georgia staff.

"I spent some time with Coach (Todd) Grantham and Coach (Scott) Lakatos, and they are great guys and coaches," he said. "They talked with me about what they want me to do and stuff. They are recruiting me the hardest."

Alabama is another school that has been contacting Farrow on a regular basis, but neither of the teams contacting him were his favorite growing up.

"Growing up, I liked the Florida Gators," said Farrow. "I haven't heard anything from them though, but I like Georgia a lot."

The Peach State sleeper made a name for himself at the Georgia Rising Seniors game in December of 2011 with his quickness and ability to accelerate, but he knows that he has more work to do before he makes a name for himself at the next level.

"Right now, I'm just going to keep working hard," said Farrow. "I'm going to go to camps this summer and try and get better. Hopefully the offers will come."
