Colorado Buffaloes nab first Texas recruit of 2019 football class

Kamryn Farrar becomes the latest CU commit from the Dallas-Fort Worth area

The Colorado Buffaloes added a fourth recruit to their 2019 football class on Wednesday. Kamryn Farrar, a 6-foot, 205-pound outside linebacker from Skyline HS (Dallas, TX) made it official by announcing he would be coming to Boulder.

“It felt like a home away from home,” Farrar said. “It only felt right to commit to what I feel is a remarkable university and a phenomenal staff. Can’t forget about the Pac-12 and also getting my degree in three and a half years.”

The versatile defender received offers from four smaller schools prior to the one from CU in mid-February, but after an official visit wasted no time in the process. “Coach Mac sealed the deal as he talked about the evaluation process and what he thought about me as a player and the four F’s which he uses to model the program.”

Farrar’s the first out-of-state player and the first defensive player recruited by secondary coach ShaDon Brown to join the Buffs’ future class. Known for his disruptive tendencies at linebacker, Farrar has also played some at strong safety this past season. “It’s pretty easy because in the offseason I train as a DB and play 7-on-7 as one,” Farrar added. “I think my strengths will be on full display in coach Eliot’s 3-4 scheme.”

The Texas All-State selection is a sleeper as an established physical run stopper and has decent acceleration speed to chase down opponents with a 4.48 40-yard dash time. All natural qualities from being as a two-sport athlete in Track and Field as well. Farrar’s highlight reel shows his ability to swarm the ball as a patient decision maker. Often times pursuing the quarterback with a quick burst of speed and finishing with a tremendous hit. He’s a perfect fit for the Buffbacker position that looks to be a mainstay in this defense. “The relationship with coach Brown swayed me in coming to CU, because he talked about family, accountability and being part of the DB unit,” Farrar noted.

He looks like a very underrated talent to say the least.

Welcome, Kamryn.
