The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Garmon has seen interest from Notre Dame increase markedly lately, and he is reciprocating by making an unofficial visit to campus next week.
"They said coach (Brian) Kelly wanted to talk to me," Garmon said. "And then they said they were going to offer me when I came on campus."
Garmon, who is the 10th-rated running back in Scout.com's 2012 class, is being recruited by offensive coordinator Charley Molnar.
"He's a cool coach," Garmon said. "I don't talk to him that much. He just wants me to come to campus."
And despite the Irish getting involved semi-late (or, at least by the intensified recruiting process) in his recruitment, it isn't a big deal to Garmon.
"They want me to come on campus first (before an offer)," Garmon said. "I want to put them in the loop. They have a good start to the recruiting class, and I might want to be a part of it.
"There's a couple of schools I like but there are more schools still coming at me, and I would like to see them now, like Virginia Tech, Arizona State and LSU. I have a real interest (in Notre Dame) and as more schools come in, I'm going to give them a chance."
However, that has changed because Garmon's recruitment exploded.
"It got real crazy," said Garmon, who is keeping an even keel about the attention. "I have 31 offers now. I try to stay level and not get a big head and stay humble and be myself."
Although Garmon is a big-bodied running back, he doesn't think it would be a problem playing in the spread.
"I would have to see how I fit in," said Garmon, who also explained his knowledge of Notre Dame. "What (stands out) is just the tradition they have and the fan base. They have a good academic program."
While Garmon is trying to get a feel for the new schools paying close attention to him, he is taking a break this weekend to attend the Gridiron Kings 7-on-7 event at Walt Disney World.
"I want to go down and their and meet new players and have fun and compete," he said.
