Mooresville All-State LB Jamari Farmer commits to Indiana

A talented linebacker from Mooresville will play his college football in the Midwest.

Jamari Farmer committed to the Indiana Hoosiers on Monday. He announced his decision to his X account.

In his post, Farmer said “Dear Indiana University Football, I am honored and excited to announce my commitment to join the Indiana University football program! From the moment I stepped onto Memorial Stadium, I felt the undeniable energy and passion that defines Hoosier football. The tradition of excellence and the unwavering support from fans make this decision even more special. IU’s dedication to academic achievement and the family atmosphere within the program are exactly what I was looking for in a university. I am ready to work tirelessly alongside my teammates to achieve our goals and make our mark in the Big Ten Conference. Thank you to my family, coaches, and supporters who have helped me reach this milestone. I can’t wait to wear the Cream and Crimson proudly and represent Indiana University. Go Hoosiers!”

Farmer was the Defensive Player of the Year in the Greater Metro 4A Conference and was named to the HighSchoolOT All-State Football Team for his play in 2023.

As a junior, Farmer posted 130 tackles (10.8/game), 26 tackles for a loss, eight sacks, one interception that he returned for a touchdown, two pass breakups, and one forced fumble. He has 258 tackles and 13 sacks over his career.

The class of 2025 prospect is listed at six feet tall and 210 pounds.

Indiana was the latest school to offer him. The Hoosiers extended the verbal opportunity on May 24. Prior to that, he was offered by (in order) Cincinnati, Coastal Carolina, Old Dominion, Georgia Southern, NC A&T, Delaware, East Carolina, Bryant, Elon, and Charlotte. It is not surprising to see an in-state prospect leave when his first in-state offer comes after four out-of-state opportunities.

Mooresville finished the 2023 season with an 11-1 overall record. The Blue Devils lost in a 19-14 contest to Mount Tabor in the second round of the N.C. High School Athletic Association’s 4A West playoffs.
