When you talk about any prospect this season that saw a major bump in their recruitment, one name that comes to mind should be Nick Farrar.
Farrar is a 6-foot-7 power forward from Apex, NC. Around late-March he didn’t hold any offers but once April hit and the summer months started flowing by, Farrar ended his summer with 25 offers, most recently, landing an offer from NC State just three days ago.
Now fast forward two days after the offer, Farrar announces his commitment to NC State, his dream school for nearly his entire life.
“I chose State because it was an great opportunity for me to be able to play close to home and playing in the ACC is big because it’s the second biggest league in basketball in my opinion,” Farrar said.
But for Farrar he didn’t get to this point without grinding or without facing any setbacks. Rewind to freshmen year, just getting started with high school ball, Farrar breaks his leg.
“Breaking my leg was hard for me as well, I was just determined to get my body back in shape.”
And rewind even further, Farrar as a young boy, lost his mother.
“My mother passing away was hard for me and motivated me to keep playing ball for her to make her proud and myself as well. My mom knew how to work hard, she ran track and installed hard work into me as well.”
After all the tragedies he faced, he worked even harder and lands himself at his dream school and will play in possibly the best conference in the country in front of his hometown.
Onto his game.
He gives himself a personal scouting report:
“I’m a inside and out stretch four with guard skills and I take advantage of mismatches well which opens up for other players as well.”
— Senior year goals?
“Senior year goal is to win a state championship with my brothers.”
