A first-team all-district, second-team all-region, second-team all-Timesland and first-team all-state underclassmen selection in 2008, Rockbridge County (VA) junior offensive lineman/defensive lineman Caleb Farris now hopes to enjoy success in the recruiting trail. A host of schools are showing initial interest in the 6-4 1/2, 300-pound prospect, who has been and will be very active on the recruiting trail.

“I don’t have any offers yet, but I’m hoping to get a couple soon,” Farris said.

Boston College, James Madison, Liberty, Maryland, Virginia and Virginia Tech are currently showing the most interest in Farris, who has also received letters from Notre Dame. He was just invited to a Maryland junior day set for next Saturday and he plans to make that trip. He also has Boston College and Virginia Tech (February 21st) on the schedule, and he hopes to check out Connecticut, Georgia, Liberty, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Tennessee and UVa as well.

Virginia Tech primary recruiter Bryan Stinespring stopped by Rockbridge on Monday and indicated that he was impressed with Farris’ junior DVD. Tech is rumored to be a heavy favorite if an offer was extended, but right now Farris declined to name any favorites.

“If Tech offered it would be big, but I’m not picking favorites now,” Farris said. “Somebody said I would commit to Tech right away if they offered, but that is not true. A lot of things are going to go into the equation in my college choice. Playing time, coaching, environment and of course education are in there.”

Earlier this month, Farris headed down to San Antonio to compete in the U.S. Army All-American Junior Combine. He reflected on the experience, which appears to have gone well.

“I think I did pretty good,” said Farris, who posted a 4.8-second time in the shuttle. “In every case, you win some and you lose some. Going down there gave me the opportunity to go against the best of the best. It was an elite recruit thing there. It was a great experience and I think I did pretty well. I’ve been listed as
