Washington State University announced earlier today that the Mike Leach was able to land Jeffery Farrar, a 6-1, 195 lb safety from Upland High School in Upland, California for the 2014 season and will be eligible to play immediately.
The new Coug had originally signed with the University of Virginia but was unable to meet their academic requirements to enroll. Farrar then turned to Leach and company and has signed a Financial Aid Agreement to play for the Cougs immediately.
It is apparent that Farrar is excited for what is about to come after tweeting out earlier today that getting the offer from the Cougs feels better than his first offer.
To keep it 100 this feels way better then my first offer

Out of high school Farrar was ranked a 3-star athlete by Scout.com and a 4-star athlete by ESPN.com and was also ranked in their top 300 at 232nd.
In high school Farrar was mainly a defensive end and a wide receiver where he recorded 35 tackles and 5 interceptions as a DB and hauled in 25 passes for 201 yards as a receiver.
Leach and the other coaches might have Farrar play both ways for the Cougars but expect him to play safety for the most part and be a big part of the secondary as the Cougars look to advance in the PAC-12.
Farrar also held offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Miami, Michigan State, UCLA, and many more out of high school.
