"It feels really good to finally get it done and get it signed," Garr said following the ceremony. "I'm really happy with my decision. I think that U of L is a great fit for me. I get to stay home and play in front of my family and friends. I'm ready to play right now."
He'll join a host of Male High School alums now playing at Louisville.
"It's going to be good to play with Michael [Bush], Sergio [Spencer], Montrell [Jones] and Matt [Sanders] again," said Garr. "I think that I'll learn from them and feel right at home."
The All-State performer is also excited about playing for the No.6 rated and hometown Cardinals.
"It feels really special to play for Louisville," explained Garr. "It will be nice to get the recognition around my own home town and be known by name in every household."
Garr, knowing that it is possible that he could redshirt next season, also says that he'll come in prepared to compete right away.
"If I need to come in and sit a year I'll do that, but I'll be coming in ready to play," Garr said.
