Griz recruit: Mitchell Farr


I have heard that the Grizzly coaching staff is recruiting Mitchell Farr of (Racine) Case high school in Racine, Wisconsin. Mitchell is Milwaukee Running Rebels AAU teammate with fellow Griz recruit Haki Stampley, and is primarily being recruited by current (as I write this) Grizzly assistant coach Eddie Owens.
Farr is a 6-2 shooting guard prospect who averaged 16 point, 5 rebounds and 4 assets a game last year for Case high school. Farrs is an outstanding three point shooter, with 57 of his 64 made field goals, last season, came from three point range.

Farr is projected as a shooting guard prospect in college but many feel he may be able to make the transition to the point guard spot on the right team.

Farr is an interesting prospect in the fact that his ratings are all over the board. Rivals.com rates him as a “no star” prospect while Scout.com rates him as a 2 star prospect. Wisconsin Sports network rated him as the #38 prospect in the state pre-summer but he is expected to rise to a top 10 or 20 prospect when pre season raking come out. ESPN gave him a very respectable 88 rating and labeled him as the #65 shooting guard prospect in the country.

Here is ESPN’s evaluation

April, 2010: If anyone is looking for someone who has a deft stroke from 3 in the same category as a Stephon Curry you need to give this guy a look. I watched him single handedly win a game with his cut throat mentality from deep. He comes off screens ready to knock it down and never looks hurried. He shot effortlessly from 26′ and in. Defenders tried to tag him to the perimeter and he consistently ran them into screens getting open for looks. When defenders attempted to run him off the line he calmly put the ball on the floor for his high percentage mid-range game. He seemed unflappable under pressure. He was by far the best shooter I saw on the weekend, and could be one of the better pure shooters in the class.

I am told that no one in Wisconsin has improved their stock this summer as much as Farr has. Currently, his top four schools are High Point, Jacksonville, Montana, and Rhode Island. Montana is the only school of the four that have not offered Farr at this point, but that is pretty typical for Montana. They often like to wait to offer athletes until their official visits.
