Ethan Farmer ‘s recruiting card

6-4, 265-pound tight end/defensive end Ethan Farmer , one of the top remaining uncommitted senior prospects in the state of North Carolina, concluded his high school career last week and will now work towards figuring out where he will attend college. The talented prospect boasts double-digit scholarship offers, but there are some programs that have impressed more than others as he figures out where he will visit.

“North Carolina has impressed me a lot. Virginia Tech has impressed me. Clemson, too,” Farmer said. “Duke has impressed me a lot with the way they are stepping up on the ACC level. Tennessee is impressing me. N.C.State is there. Alabama is playing good. Virginia is there, too. There are several options,” said Farmer, who did not name one clear favorite. He has taken unofficial visits to Clemson, Duke, North Carolina and N.C. State.

Farmer hopes to take one official visit this month. He plans on taking all five official visits and will take the remaining four in December and January.

“I’m just going to take my time and narrow it down from here,” Farmer said.

South Columbus finished with a 4-7 record this season, but Farmer turned in another standout season at tight end and defensive end. He has been selected to play in the Shrine Bowl, an all-star game that matches the top seniors in North Carolina against the top seniors in South Carolina.

“It means a lot to me,” Farmer said of earning a spot in the Shrine Bowl, which takes place in December. “I thank God for it. It took a lot of hard work. I really had to push my tail. I’m glad for it. It’s good for me, my coaching staff and my school.”

Whichever school he ends up choosing, Farmer hopes to be ready when he arrives next summer.

“It’ll be a bigger jump from high school to college, but I’m going to prepare myself,” Farmer said. “I’m going to play varsity basketball and then I’m going to work hard and get in good shape.”


Virginia Tech doesn’t have many spots remaining in the class, but Farmer believes he still has a spot if he wants it.

“They say I can decide whenever I want,” Farmer said.
