After finishing the season with 55 tackles and an interception, Juwan Gardner is now looking to the future. Gardner had been committed to Western Kentucky and Willie Taggart. But when Taggart bolted to South Florida, everything was back up in the air.
Gardner got a chance, however, to speak with new Western Kentucky coach, Bob Petrino on Thursday.
"Petrino actually did an in-home visit with me last Thursday. It was nice. He's a real smooth talker, but I like him," said Gardner. "He sounded like a man with a plan, so I'm still pretty solid with them, but my options are still open."
"I'm going to UT-Martin. I don't have set dates yet, but I'm taking my Western visit in January and UT-Martin wants me to come a week after I take that visit," Gardner finished.
