Minnetonka (MN) cornerback James Farrow is the subject of this latest “Q&A.” The 6-0, 175-pound senior was in Blacksburg this past weekend on an official visit, making his first return to Virginia Tech since the unofficial visit he made back in August. Farrow, who committed on the previous trip, spent most of this past weekend getting to know his future teammates.
Q&A with James Farrow
TechSideline.com: Overall, how was your experience?
James Farrow : It was everything I expected. And more. I had a great time.
TSL: Take me through the weekend. What was on the itinerary?
James Farrow : I got there around one in the afternoon on Friday. My flight came in to Roanoke Airport. I was driven to the actual campus, where I got settled into my hotel room. I was picked up at the hotel at 6:45. I ate with the team. I met my host, Zack McCray. I talked to some players and coaches. It was great to see Coach Gray again. I was meeting some of the guys for the first time. Zack then took me out on Friday night. I spent some time with Detrick Bonner and some of the younger DBs. It was cool to hang out.
On Saturday, I had an early breakfast with Coach Gray and then headed over for the game. I went to a little bit of the pregame stuff. Then I watched the game. Obviously, that was cool to be part of. Watching the team come in to Enter Sandman and then watching them beat up on Duke, it was great. Postgame, the team prayed in the entrance, which was cool. I hung out with some of my future teammates from then on.
[On Sunday] I met with Coach Beamer, but mostly the weekend about meeting my future teammates.
TSL: Did you get a closer look at the academic side of things?
