Tarence Farmer Inks With Cowboys

Cowboy football picked up potentially an impact player when Alabama transfer Tarence Farmer inked to play with the Cowboys. Farmer will sit out 2008 season before he'll be available for 2009. The Pokes looked to have added a top line athlete who was rated three stars by Rivals.com and the #66 best player at safety after signing with Nick Saban's first class for the Crimson Tide.

Farmer is described by Rivals as a prospect with good speed and athleticism who can play both sides of the ball, though the Cowboys like him as a wide receiver with his 6 foot 1 and 190 pound frame plus 4.4 - forty yard dash speed. No question a player with the athletic skills to make an impact in the Mountain West Conference as a big play threat. Wyoming expects him to make an impact in 2009 after sitting out this fall.

Farmer played his prep ball at Houston's St. Pius X Catholic High School, where he helped lead them to a perfect 13-0 record and championship.

Farmer caught 44 passes for 1,144 yards while averaging of 26.3 yards per catch and 15 touchdowns during his senior season in 2007. He recorded 48 solo and eight assisted tackles, three tackles for a loss, 12 pass break-ups and three interceptions going for two defensive touchdowns.

Farmer will have three years of eligibiltiy and will be in Laramie for opening day practice on August 3rd.
