It’s official, Nick Farrar is staying home.
Much to the delight of Wolfpack fans—and to the chagrin of the 20-plus programs that offered him—Farrar announced his commitment to N.C. State on Wednesday, as he plans to take the 20-minute journey from his home in Holly Springs, N.C. to don the red and white.
Farrar was a standout player at Apex Friendship (N.C.), helping the Patriots to one of their best seasons in program history. The 6-foot-7 stretch big led Apex Friendship to a 22-7 record.
Individually, he impressed by averaging 18.9 points, 9.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.5 steals, through the 29-game campaign.
Despite this, he didn’t make noise on the recruiting front until he continued that strong play into the AAU season. In just about three months, he racked up over 20 offers. While he’s unranked in various recruiting services, his rising stock was undeniable.
In the field of offers, the Seton Hall Pirates were in the mix, offering him on July 31. The Pirates joined a field that included the likes of LSU, Houston, Cincinnati, Texas A&M, and many others.
Unfortunately for Seton Hall, it was another recent suitor that would land Farrar, as N.C. State officially offered him on Monday and his decision would be made shortly after.
