There’s a new 2011 name to keep tabs on: 6-9 Evanston (IL) forward James Farr.

Dave Spahn, a writer for Slam Magazine, tweeted last night that Tom Crean checked out Farr earlier this week and Mike Pegram of Peegs.com tweeted that Farr was in attendance for last night’s game against Wisconsin.

Farr was indeed in Assembly Hall on Thursday night and offered this review of his trip to Bloomington to ChicagoHoops.com:

“The visit to Indiana was amazing. The campus was huge. The school and arena had a great atmosphere and I could tell every student I saw truly loved Indiana University.”

According to the brief story on ChicagoHoops, Farr is considering Xavier, Virginia, Boise State, Ball State, Illinois State and Nevada. His senior season at Evanston ended on Tuesday with a 58-51 loss to Schaumburg in the Class 4A regional semifinal. Farr finished with 17 points and 10 rebounds.

ESPN ranks him the 109th best power forward in the class and calls him a “mobile, aggressive and skilled power forward” that can create matchup problems. There’s also this YouTube video from Daniel Poneman:
