Farrell put together an exceptional career at storied Valencia (Calif.) High, capped by an 8-2, 1.43 mark his senior season as he led the Vikings to the outright Foothill League championship. Farrell is extremely projectable in his 6-foot-3, 178-pound frame, leaving scouts dreaming about what he can be as he fills out. However, his present stuff underwhelms compared to his other draft-eligible peers, with a fastball that sits in the high 80's and scrapes 92 mph and a slider that only flashes average. Without any offerings even average at the moment, Farrell is likely to honor his commitment to UCLA, where scouts will watch him closely to see how he develops.
