Having only played two years of organized football coming into Notre Dame, Farley is the epitome of raw talent. With a 40-yard dash of 4.5 seconds and versatility on both sides of the ball Farley can only improve in a college system.

Out of Charlotte Christian High School in North Carolina, the all-state phenom tallied 1,500 yards receiving and 22 touchdowns while being used as a slot receiver, wideout and at, times, tailback. As a defensive back, Farley recorded 49 tackles this past season, after previously committing to Notre Dame in April as Kelly’s fourth recruit to join team. With the ability to play multiple positions, look for Farley to be all over the field, from special teams to receiver to safety, where his ball-hawking abilities are sure to shine.
