Zach Farrar is a 6’4” 208 pound wide receiver/safety prospect for the Class of 2016 that was recently offered a scholarship to play for the BYU football team. Most probably consider him a long shot (he currently has 21 other offers), but he works out with former BYU wide receiver Margin Hooks, and BYU has done pretty well recruiting in the state of Texas over the last few seasons.
