Cal Football Recruiting: Koa Farmer Commits To The Bears

Harry How

The Sherman Oaks athlete and defensive back is the first recruit for Cal in the 2014 recruiting class.

Koa Farmer is the first recruit for the Bears in the 2014 recruiting class. Farmer took an unofficial visit to Cal and was apparently impressed by what he saw. Farmer got offered by Cal that weekend.

The Bears are recruiting him as a safety. Ashley Ambrose was Farmer's primary recruiter and was the position coach who insisted on making the early offer.

This is Farmer's second offer. He has already received an offer from Utah. Cal was his dream school growing up.

"I've always wanted to go to Cal since I was little," said Farmer. "It's my dream school. I used to play video games with Cal -guys like DeSean Jackson and Marshawn Lynch.

"When they offered me, it was like a dream come true."

Cal's academic standing also had a major influence on Farmer, a 3.7 gpa student at Notre Dame.

"Cal has 20 professors that have won the Nobel Prize and I want to major in some type of neural medicine or orthopedic medicine and they're a great school for that."

So far this season, Farmer has 30 tackles and two interceptions on defense. He's also added five touchdowns on 20 catches on offense. Farmer is teammates with 2013 Cal running back target Khalfani Muhammad. Both Farmer and Muhammad attended last week's Big Game.

Here are Farmer's highlights courtesy of Hudl, and a mid-season junior highlight reel.

Obviously it's a long way until NSD 2014, but it's good to see that we have a lot of talented youngsters interested in being Golden Bears. Welcome Koa!
