It looks like Mike Boynton isn’t the only one landing recruits this Tuesday. Just hours after the basketball team picked up a commitment from 4-star guard Avery Anderson, the Cowboy football team added a commitment from 3-star outside linebacker Kamryn Farrar.
Farrar, who plays for Skyline High School in Dallas, Texas, had been committed to Colorado since March, but announced Tuesday that he was flipping his commitment to Oklahoma State.
“After much thought and careful consideration, I have decided to make my commitment now in an effort to focus my energy on school and the sport I love. With that being said I will be committing to Oklahoma State University!!! I’m home.”
Farrar picked the Cowboys who had been making a concerted effort to get him to switch from Black and Gold to Orange and Black.
“Oklahoma State has been recruiting me hard,” Farrar told Rivals back in May. “They’ve been about the only other school that’s come through and constantly communicating with me and watching me practice … They tell me that they like how I play the linebacker spot - or even nickel - they like my cover skills.”
The Cowboys were not only successful in getting his commitment, but also at beating out TCU who were reportedly working for the same result.
At 6-foot, 200-lb, Farrar isn’t the biggest linebacker, but he’s versatile and instinctive, and should fit perfectly in Jim Knowles’ defensive scheme.
Farrar is now the 17th commit overall in the Cowboys’ 2019 class, and second outside linebacker, joining Na’Drian Dizadare.
