Maryland is Garvin's only written offer, and he is receiving interest from Syracuse, Connecticut, North Carolina State and Tennessee. Maryland defensive coordinator Chris Cosh is recruiting the 6-foot-2, 210-pound Garvin, who said the Terps are at the top of his list.
"Right now it's Maryland it seems like," Garvin said. "This is my favorite. They also told me that I could—because they're not really, really deep—I'm not sure, but I could have a chance of playing early."
Garvin, a Baltimore Sun second team All-Metro selection in the fall, had about 1,020 yards and 15 touchdowns as a running back and 42 tackles and three interceptions at safety for Loyola. Maryland is recruiting Garvin as a free safety.
Maryland's top two free safeties heading into the spring are rising junior Terrell Skinner and rising sophomore Antwine Perez, who will have three years of eligibility after transferring from Southern Cal last year.
Garvin is participating in an April 26 Nike combine in Ashburn, Va., and was invited to participate in the Penn State Nike combine. He also plans to go to camp at Maryland, Connecticut and Syracuse this summer.
Garvin intends to commit to a school before his senior season starts. "I'm going to do it before next season I know for sure," he said.
Garvin's teammate, quarterback Leon Kinnard, was being recruited by Maryland before committing to Connecticut last week. Kinnard has been in Garvin's ear "a little bit" about joining him at Connecticut, Garvin said.
