A promising defensive lineman will have to fulfill said promise somewhere other than Washington.
Over the weekend, Chris Petersen announced that Marcus Farria has been dismissed from the UW football program. The reason given by the first-year head coach was, of course, the ubiquitous “violation of team standards.”
Despite playing in just seven games last season as a true freshman, Farria totaled 2.5 sacks, which was tied for fifth on the team.
A three-star member of UW’s 2013 recruiting class, Farria was rated as the No, 23 weakside defensive end in the country and the No. 7 player at any position in the state of Arizona. As for clues to a potential landing spot, Farria received offers coming out of high school from, among others, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Notre Dame, Tennessee and Utah.
