After 3 years, Farmer finally flourishing

For four years at USC, George Farmer has been an elusive butterfly of potential, flitting toward a shard of the spotlight here, fluttering toward the edge of darkness there.

He arrived as the most touted of all Serra High prospects, faster than Robert Woods, bigger and stronger than Marqise Lee. He was an eye-popping package of five-star talent and Trojans fans could hardly wait for him to burst upon the scene back in 2011.

Except now it is 2014, and everyone is still waiting.
