Another new Husky?

That appears to be the case as Scout.com is reporting tonight that UW has received a commitment from defensive end Marcus Farria of Centennial High in Peoria, Ariz.

Scout.com rates him a three-star prospect and the No. 29 DE overall, as well as listing him as the top defensive linemen in the state of Arizona this year. Scout.com lists him at 6-4, 240 pounds. He had reported offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas and Notre Dame, among other schools. Scout.com’s Jake Worthen Tweeted that Farria is a “bigger Josh Shirley, skill set wise.”

Rivals.com has Farria at four stars and considers him the No. 16 weakside DE in the country while listing him at 6-4, 226 pounds.

Farria is the 17th known commit for UW’s Class of 2013 and the second from a defensive end (the other being Daeshon Hall of Lancaster, Texas).

The Arizona Republic had this item on Farria last year, noting he’s originally from Louisana, while ESPN had this small item on him last fall, as well..

ESPN.com rates him 49th at his position and its scouting report says in part:

“Farria is a physically good looking end prospect. He possesses very good height and looks to have a fairly thick and muscular build with room for additional size with further physical development. He displays a nice though inconsistent initial burst. Against the run he does a good job of being active with his hands and displays the hand strength to be able to shed. . … With his size and strength he can get push to constrict the pocket when he keeps his pads down. Farria is a big strong end prospect with some good physical tools and he can be productive with some further development and if allowed to play to his strengths. A strong-side end type who could end up sliding inside with additional bulk.”
