2021 WR Farooq impresses at The Opening DC Regional

May 7, 2019

Trojaninsider.com headed to Washington DC for The Opening Regional last weekend to check on a few elite RBs USC is heavily pursuing in Blake Corum‍ and Marshawn Lloyd‍. Although we were there to mainly see those two, we also saw five-star WR Rakim Jarrett‍ and several imoressive 2021 prospects.

One player that immediately caught our attention was 2021 four-star Upper Marlboro (MD) WR Jalil Farooq‍, who already has offers from Ohio St., Michigan, Penn St., South Carolina, Kentucky, Indiana, Baylor, Pittsburgh, Temple, Maryland and Virginia Tech.

Schools on the West Coast generally don’t sign a significant number of prospects from the East Coast and it’s difficult to get the top players in that region to head across the country for college, but Farooq is very open to that idea.

”I would love an opportunity to play in the West Coast a school like USC or Oregon,” said Farooq. “If they were to offer me, I would definitely visit at some point.”

While he hasn’t visited a large number of schools yet, he recently visited Texas A&M.

“Living there is amazing, the education is great and it’s ,Ike a family there, a brotherhood,” said Farooq about College Station, TX. “I can definitely see myself going back there.”

He plans to visit Ohio St. At some point and talked about what’s taking him to Columbus.

“I have a great relationship with Larry Johnson and I’m really looking forward to seeing the school,” Farooq said.

Theres still at least 19 months until Farooq will sign a letter of intent with a college, but he has a few items he’s kooking for from his future home.

”School and my education is definitely very important to me,” said Farooq. “I’m looking or a place that’s a brotherhood, like a family. Also looking for a good football program and what it’s like to live where I’ll end up in college is also important.”

Farooq said Ohio St., Penn St., Syracuse and UMass have stopped my Dr. Henry Wise HS so far this Spring.
