Minnetonka (MN) defensive back James Farrow has taken visits to two of his four favorite schools. He’ll visit the other two – one of which is Virginia Tech – over the course of the next several days. The 6-0, 175-pound rising senior discusses his plans and where he stands in the decision-making process in this latest update.

Michigan State and Wisconsin join Virginia Tech and West Virginia at the top of the Minnesota star’s list. Three of the four favorites have officially offered with Wisconsin seemingly on the verge of an offer as well.

“These are the four schools I’m really dedicating my time to,” said Farrow. “I’m sure some other schools are still in the mix, but these are the four schools I’m really thinking about right now.”

Is there a chance Farrow commits this week?

“I really want to return home without committing this week,” Farrow answered. “I don’t want to commit based on an excited feeling. I will make sure I evaluate each school and take my time.
