Will Stephen Garr Go Out of State?

Male High School's Stephen Garr spoke with Inside the Ville on Monday evening about his team's play at the Illinois 7-on-7, positions and college plans.

A glance at the current Louisville football roster finds a number of Male High School alumni, including Michael Bush, Matt Sanders and Montrell Jones. The latest Bulldog receiving high interest from the Cardinals is Stephen Garr, a wide receiver and defensive back for Bob Redman's Male squad.

Fresh off a trip to the University of Illinois for the national 7-on-7 tournament, where he helped guide Male to a 4-1 record and a victory in the consolation bracket championship, Garr is now focusing on preparing for his senior campaign.

"I don't plan on going to anymore camps," said Garr. "I just want to focus on my senior season and get ready."

For the U of L coaches, no more camps are needed, as the Cardinals were the first to offer the 6-foot-2, 175-pound athlete a scholarship.

"Right now U of L is the only one," Garr said. "Either or both Purdue and Indiana will probably offer a scholarship soon. Northwestern has really picked it up lately. Illinois, Vanderbilt, Kentucky and Alabama are some of the other ones."

Despite having a scholarship offer in hand from the hometown Cardinals and seeing rising interest from many other programs, Garr isn't in any hurry to claim a list of favorites.

"I'm going to take my time," explained Garr. "I will wait until after the season before making a decision."

However, Garr did hint at the possibility of playing out of state.

"Staying close to home so my family can see me play will be a factor in my decision, but not that big of one," continued Garr. "I've always wanted to play out of state, so right now my mind is set on that."
