Over the last month for the Wisconsin Badgers, running backs coach Thomas Brown emerged as the recruiting MVP of the coaching staff. He helped keep key offensive pieces in Madison and made splashes in the southeast, adding Bradrick Shaw and being credited with both late visitors that came to Madison.
And while Terez Hall ended up going to Missouri, Wisconsin's defense got itself a four-star talent to close National Signing Day with a big win when Arrington Farrar announced that he was committing to the Badgers.
Farrar, a four-star safety from Woodward Academy in Atlanta, is a big and rangy (6'2, 201 lbs., 4.50-second 40-yard dash, 4.06-second shuttle) safety who will likely be a big outside linebacker threat sooner than later in the Dave Aranda defense. He's got a downhill, attacking style that will do some great work in this defense in terms of run-stuffing.
Harrington initially committed to Stanford, but decommitted from the Cardinal on Jan. 12. Farrar also visited North Carolina and Notre Dame before making his decision. Clemson, Duke, Kentucky, Minnesota, Ole Miss, South Carolina and West Virginia also offered.
