Marcus Garvin reports Nebraska offer

Nebraska hasn't been afraid to make the first move on a recruit and did so on Tuesday with Florida corner Marcus Garvin.

Marcus Garvin, a cornerback from Strahnahan HS (FL) in Fort Lauderdale doesn’t have to wait any longer. The junior has received his first power five offer.

“Coach Brian Stewart yesterday wanted to assure me that everything was official,” said Garvin. “Coach Stewart is a great man.”

The 5-foot-9, 165-pound defensive back impressed with his coverage ability and ball skills at the South Florida Express 7on7 tryout camp in January.

"I'm the type of player that has great ball skills and I have a high football IQ out on the field," Garvin stated at the time. "I'm working on my technique in coverage, and I'm in the weight room looking to get bigger and stronger. That will help make me a better tackler."

Coach Stewart obviously agreed with Garvin’s assessment when it came to his ball skills, mentioning it when he extended the offer.

“He also liked my physicality,” said Garvin.

Garvin has a busy summer, which includes a trip to Nebraska.

“I’m definitely visiting in June and I know that I want to complete at a high level and win a college championship,” said Garvin.

According to the 2016 prospect, he wasn’t the only prospect at Stranahan high school to receive an offer from the Huskers on Tuesday. Also getting a scholarship nod was Daewood Davis, a 2017 wide receiver who also boasts offers from North Carolina State, Ohio and Utah.
