Farrell Goes Early, Joining The Highlanders For 2012
Published by Gilbert Muako on December 14, 2011
“They were still recruiting me fairly heavily and I ended up just going down for a visit on a long weekend,” he said, “I really loved the visit. The guys on the team were cool, the academic advisers were super helpful and I like the big city environment… It’s a big change from where I was brought up.”
The 6-Foot-2 point guard first made a name for himself last year at the A-Game camp showing his ability to handle the ball, control a team, distribute and use his great ball IQ as a floor general.
Though considered one of the top point guards in the country for the 2013 class, Farrell will forego his fifth year option and head to the next level earlier than he or anyone else expected by joining the Highlanders 2012 recruiting class.
“I thought of staying for my fifth year…(But) this is a good situation for me, I can come into a building program and make a real impact. And I’m 10 minutes from New York City. The school is great academically, and the coaching staff is great…I didn’t think I was going to find the right situation this soon, but it ended up finding me.”
Farrell’s Twin Lakes secondary team is 9-3 and he hasn’t scored under 25 points so far in the season.
