"I feel good about my chances," said Garvin, a 5-foot-9, 178-pounder who wowed scouts at the Meadowlands MSL combine, running 4.22 and 4.3 40s.
On the gridiron, Garvin totaled 45 tackles and four interceptions, returning two for scores. On offense, he tallied rushing 615 yards his junior season on 32 carries. He's already been toe-to-toe with the best – Garvin's battle with top receiver prospect Derrick Williams were reported as some of the best at the Meadowlands.
The results have been tangible. Garvin says he's up to 38 offers, with Florida State being the latest.
With camp plans up in the air, Garvin said he will take a tour of the south sometime in the coming weeks to check out some campuses of choice.
"I've already been to a few camps this spring so I'm not sure which school camps I'll be going to."
The formidable drive and the possibility of living and playing a long way from home?
Not a factor.
"I could see myself playing in the south," said Garvin, who was hesitant to name any leaders or favorites.
"The weather is great down there and there is a lot of tradition surrounding teams down there." Garvin said he follows Florida State football and watches nationally televised games whenever possible. He'll be tuned in on Labor Day when the Seminoles take on Miami to open the season.
