Kenny Farrow, a 5-foot-10, 190-pound running back from Bell High School in Hurst, Texas, is back on the market after new Colorado coach Jon Embree recently called his high school coach to tell him the Buffs would not be honoring the scholarship offer extended to Farrow under former coach Dan Hawkins.
Farrow was disappointed to hear the news but already has turned his attention to other program that remained interested in him throughout his senior season.
Farrow says he has an official visit set up to Iowa on Jan. 21 and is talking with the coaches at Houston and Western Kentucky as well. He is hoping to get back in touch with TCU coaches as well.
"I know I'll have somewhere to go," Farrow said. "I just don't know where yet."
Farrow isn't the only Hawkins' recruit to get the bad news. Quarterback Nick Sherry also had his Colorado scholarship offered pulled and it looking for another program to join.
Colorado has four known commitments and is expected to sign between 12 and 15 players in the 2011 recruiting cycle after having a small senior class in 2010.
Farrow said he was happy to have recruiting out of the way earlier this fall when he made his decision and it's tough to have so much uncertainty now.
"It's tough cause I've got schools like Iowa saying they want to wait a second, but, at the same time, I don't really have a second to be waiting on a school I want to go to," Farrow said. "You can't wait for one school because if that school doesn't come through then you're out of luck come signing day."
Kenny Farrow committed to Colorado earlier this fall and ended up rushing for more than 1,000 yards during his senior season in high school. Now that Colorado has a new coach in place and is turning its focus toward recruiting, is Farrow still in the Buffs' plans? Get inside for more.
