From our colleague Tim Stevens in Raleigh:
Ethan Farmer, a 6-foot-3, 260-pound senior tight end and defensive
end at South Columbus High, plans to make a recruiting visit to the
University of North Carolina this weekend.
South Columbus coach Jake Fonvielle said Farmer, who is being
recruited as a defensive lineman, visited Clemson last weekend.
"Realistically, I think it is down to North Carolina and Clemson,"
Fonville said. "Those are the two places that he has visited. I think
he is going to Carolina this weekend and make his decision pretty
Farmer is ranked No. 6 in the state in the Charlotte Observer's Top
25. Farmer and Roanoke Rapids' Kareem Martin are the only two players
among the Top 25 in North Carolina who are not committed.
The national signing day is Wednesday, Feb. 3.
"He is a young guy with good size who is really quick," Fonvielle
said. "He is really strong and is going to continue getting better."
