Texas 2017 OG target Will Farrar commits to Texas Tech

The once projected Longhorn lean won't be playing college football in Austin

There was a time when three-star Richmond guard Will Farrar was considered a heavy Texas Longhorns lean. Time passed; Texas didn't make Farrar a priority and now the 2017 Houston-area product is headed to Texas Tech.

Farrar had a solid relationship with the Texas coaching staff, most notably Matt Mattox, who recruited Farrar during his time at Tulsa. But as Farrar told regarding his commitment, he "just cannot see himself around any other coaches or players," than the ones at Texas Tech.

"I had talked with my parents for a few weeks about committing to Texas Tech, just before the visit and what I was thinking," Farrar said. "I just cannot really see myself around any other coaches or players. They are building a monster at Texas Tech and I really wanted to be a part of it. I don't know how else to describe it, but it feels like home here."

Farrar is the nation's No. 22 guard and No. 66 player in Texas. He held an impressive 28 offers, which included Texas, LSU, Michigan State, Houston and Miami, among others.

Farrar's commitment now gives Texas Tech six offensive line commits in 2017.
