    To describe his running style, the ESPN Evaluation did a very nice job:

    Here are his sophomore highlights:

    Farrow will be making an Official Visit to CU this weekend for the Baylor game. He talks about it in a Scout article:

    Aren't most of our guys around his size minus speedy? Just thought that was a little odd but whatever we can use all the help we can get.

    Nope. He'd be our 2nd biggest RB after Cordary Allen.

    so hate to say it, but this sort of annoys me...actually it really annoys me. If we get this kid, great. I like this kid, and he seems like a decent player.

    ...now why weren't we able to offer Brown a full scholarship? You want a physical back? Is Brown not big enough? ...

    ...
    ...I'm getting really annoyed with the recruiting right now. I was patient last year with lowered expectations, and although I can understand us not getting commitments, I can't understand the lack of visits and not offering Brown.

    To be honest Brown's recruiting has been hurt by being injured and being on a bad team his jr. year.

    I think that Brown is going to be a very good football player. I don't know if that means at RB in the PAC12. I would like to see the Buffs bring Brown in but he may end up at LB at CU.

    I also can understand CU wanting to wait on Brown and give him more time to heal up the knee.

    Farrow on the other hand looks a guy who will make or bread at RB. If Utah has offered then he is certainly worth a look, they have a pretty good track record for finding talent lately.

    You're right. For some reason, Farrow looks thicker to me. But they're like the same exact height/weight.

    I wouldn't count on him if Utah is recruiting him as well.
    Recruiting is going to suck until DII Danny is gone.

    Last night - despite the loss, it was an exciting game - was one of those outstanding Boulder nights, with perfect weather, a great sunset ...

    I could see sitting in the stands and saying "I think I'd like to live here..."

    Welcome, Kenneth.

    Woot! Welcome! A 3* Texas kid. I like that. Who recruited him?

    Well at least somebody is still recruiting. Welcome Kenneth, we apparently need RBs pretty badly. Hopefully he loved the school and not HCDH.

    Surprised that something positive came from the Baylor debacle, but this is great! Nice to get him over Utah

    When a player watches an exciting game such as that, and sees exactly where he might make a difference, it's a positive.

    the video is awesome, the kid loves to lower his shoulder and punish the tacklers.
