GBW: I heard Michigan offered you a scholarship recently. How'd it come about?

Greg Garmon: "Yeah, I probably get up there during the spring."

GBW: Is there any pressure for you to stay in state since you have the option of going to schools like Pitt or Penn State?

Greg Garmon: "There is a lot of pressure on me to stay in-state because my parents want me to stay close to home. But I have to find a place that I like and fit in at."

GBW: You have 14 offers right now. Have you had a chance to visit any of these schools yet? Does any visit stick out?

Greg Garmon: Yeah, I was down south for the North Carolina/Duke basketball game. It was crazy down there. You couldn't sit down, people stood up the whole game. I was also at North Carolina during the summer for a football camp. Butch Davis and their offensive coordinator broke down film, showed me the schemes for running backs."

Greg Garmon: "I'm hoping the Iowa and Wisconsin offer."

Greg Garmon: "The relationship with the coaching staff and academics."

GBW: Can you kind breakdown your game for those that have never seen you play?
