This week’s “Catching Up With The 2011 Class” focuses on two players, James Farrow and Christian Reeves, who have become good friends over the course of this recruiting process. Both prospects, who will be roommates at Virginia Tech this coming year, were awestruck by the Spring Game atmosphere last weekend. And both discuss the possibility of playing different positions from what they were initially recruited to play. Reeves, in fact, has already been told he’ll line up somewhere else besides tight end this coming season.

JAMES FARROW, Minnetonka (Minnetonka, MN), Cornerback

Latest height and weight: 6-0, 180 pounds

Enrollment date: June 5. “I want to come down a little bit early to get my dorm ready and everything,” Farrow said.

Notable: Lives with his Godparents in Minnetonka. His God-brother, fellow senior Austin Harrington, has accepted a recruited walk-on spot with Colorado State. He’ll play receiver for the Rams.

Another notable: Farrow and Harrington accepted invites to work out at ETS, run by Ryan Englebert. It’s an invite-only program. In just a few weeks, Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings will be coming in, and Farrow will have the chance to compete against him in 1-on-1s. The NFL Draft is here. How much do you think about the possibility of making it to the NFL?

James Farrow : Obviously, pretty much every football player’s dream is to make it to the big time. I think about it all the time, but my mind is on Tech, getting in there, and getting in early playing time. Tech’s the next step.

TSL: Do you have a favorite team you’ll be following?

James Farrow : Just a Tech fan.

TSL: Good answer. How was your Spring Game experience?

James Farrow : My experience was great. I got to meet a lot of guys in the class. I had a chance to hang out with Kyshoen Jarrett, another corner in this class. It was cool to meet him because we have talked before. Overall,
