"I wish I could have stayed longer," said Garner. "I had to leave on Monday, but I thought I did good.
"I really thought I was the best lineman there even though I hurt my ankle playing in a basketball game last week."
The 6-foot-1, 295-pound defensive tackle ripped up opposing offensive lines, as he finished his junior season with 90 tackles, 23 tackles for a loss, and 13 sacks. Jordan-Matthews tallied an 11-2 record with a loss in the playoffs at Cherryville.
On film, Garner is a disruptive force that creates havoc in opposing backfields. Although he may not have prototypical size for a defensive tackle, he more than makes up for it with a non-stop motor and tremendous work ethic.
He feels that he impressed NC State defensive line coach Keith Willis.
"Coach Willis was saying that he liked me," said Garner. "We just joked around a lot, and he told me that he is going to give me a call about an offer. I hope they offer me."
Garner is receiving attention from Virginia Tech, East Carolina, North Carolina, and Tennessee, but he admits that as NC State offer is what he is hoping for.
"I'm pretty sure I would commit if State offered me," said Garner. "I really want to go there. I like coach Willis a lot.
"I like everything about State. Everytime I go everybody comes up and talks to me like I'm one of them. It's just a fun place to be. The coaches talk to me and the players are even cool. I just like everything about it."
