And just like that we are under the 30 mark. 29 days to be exact! Also: I am aware that the guy I am profiling isn’t wearing this number in the season. But the guy I originally had is no longer on the roster so we snagged this transfer instead.—OL Will Farrar

#29 (75), Will Farrar, RS Senior, OL

Stats

Height: 6’ 5”

Weight: 322 lbs.

High School: Travis HS, Richmond, TX

How’d he get to the Blue™?

By way of the transfer portal and all it’s magicalness. After spending four years at Texas Tech, Mr. Farrar decided a change of pace and, awesomely enough, chose Boise State. He was a former three-star recruit out of high school with offers from the likes of Texas, USC, and LSU among a bunch of others. Insofar as recruiting this time around, I didn’t see what other schools were vying for Farrar’s services. He’s got two more years.

Nickname

“Farrari”

*chortle*

Look-a-like

Perhaps a slightly fuller actor and former hockey player, Wyatt Russell (Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn’s kid).

Career Highlights

Appeared in 21 games during his tenure at Texas Tech. Probably pancaked a few dudes while there. Will be nice to add some Blue and Orange highlights to this.

2021 Prospectus

The offensive line is going to have people holding their breaths this year. With Mr. Farrar in the mix, you can’t think of a situation that wouldn’t encourage the current coaches to get Farrar some playing time. But sometimes transfers can be hit or miss. Sometimes they’re all-stars, sometimes they’re just solid backups. Can’t wait to find out for Mr. Farrar.

Is he on Twitter?

He is but he doesn’t tweet a whole lot.

Completely made up fact

As a kid, Farrar was super-into those copper bracelets that left the green marks on you. He figured it would help him turn into the Hulk. It only kind of worked.
