Charlie Strong's first USF recruiting class added another late piece last night, as Jeff Farrar, a junior college cornerback out of Mt. San Antonio, signed with the Bulls.

Farrar was a four-star prospect out of California’s Upland High in 2014, and ranked 232nd in the ESPN 300. He signed with Virginia, but didn't qualify and wound up enrolling at Washington State, where he spent a redshirt year. He transferred to Mt. San Antonio the next season.
Strong hasn't stopped bolstering USF's roster after National Signing Day. A small class left a few scholarships open, and Strong's used them to bring in receiver Chauncy Smart, JUCO defensive lineman Josh Allen (update: Allen signed with Syracuse), Florida transfer Jordan Cronkrite, and now Farrar. Farrar plans to get to campus in June and would have two years of eligibility remaining, giving the Bulls some added secondary depth.
When asked for comment, Farrar said, "It's time to apply pressure. Win [the] conference and get another ring. Coach Strong has the perfect staff to get just that done."
