Farris attended Rice Memorial High School in South Burlington, Vermont, until his senior year. He was named Vermont’s Gatorade Player of the Year as a junior when he averaged 22.7 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists a game. He was originally in the 2019 class but switched to the 2020 class when he moved to Tabor.

“Kam Farris is the best pure basketball player in the state,” South Burlington coach Sol Bayer-Pacht said in a press release in 2018. “You have to guard him 28 feet from the hoop and he hits shots that you simply can’t stop. He can get to the rim and finish and he has tremendous touch.”
