Rockbridge County (Lexington, VA) junior offensive lineman Caleb Farris attended Virginia Tech’s prospect day last Saturday and he had an opportunity to speak with head coach Frank Beamer. The 6-4 1/2, 300-pound junior, who graded out at 92-percent as an offensive tackle last season as a junior, has yet to pick up a Division 1A offer but continues to draw interest from a number of Division 1A programs, including Virginia Tech.

“We sat down for lunch and it was just me, my mom and my girlfriend,” Farris recalled from last Saturday. “Then Coach Beamer stopped by and asked if he could sit down. We talked for a while. That was exciting. Coach Hite was there and we talked to him for a while.”

Farris enjoyed his most recent Blacksburg experience.

“The only thing I hadn’t seen up until [Saturday] was the Sports Memorabilia Room in the stadium,” Farris said. “It had everything about all the best players in Virginia Tech history. I was also really impressed with the new locker room they are going to build. It is going to be sweet. It seems really nice.”

Farris has certainly been proactive on the recruiting trail. Last summer, he attended camp at Boston College, James Madison, Liberty, Maryland, Notre Dame, Virginia and Virginia Tech. He has attended junior days at Maryland and Virginia Tech and plans to make a trip to Boston College on April 18th. While in Boston, he’ll make a visit to Harvard, which has been in serious pursuit, as well.

Farris will attend a Nike Camp in Charlottesville on May 3rd and may visit James Madison, Liberty and VMI in the coming months.

“It is still early for the recruiting process,” said Farris, who is open to any school that is interested. “I’m
