Former Jones, Okla., quarterback Daxx Garman is transferring from Arizona and there were reports that his destination might be Oklahoma State. That could still be true, but that story has quieted down. In checking with Oklahoma State sources we were told if Garman does wind up in Stillwater it will be without a scholarship and that he would be a walk-on for the spring.
Garman would also have to sit out a season as part of the transfer rule. Garman has played very little football since his junior season in high school at Jones. He was ruled ineligible after his junior season and for his senior season as a result. His parents tried to transfer him to Southlake Carroll in Texas, but he was ruled ineligible there after being the subject of a WFAA News 8 investigative report that revealed his father was still living in the family home in Choctaw and in violation of UIL transfer rules.
Lunt in Phoenix for Semper Fidelis All-America Bowl
One Oklahoma State commitment, a really important one, and a Cowboy recruit will play in Phoenix the night after the Cowboys meet Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl. Oklahoma State quarterback pledge Wes Lunt and Chandler, Ariz., wide receiver Javon Williams, who is scheduled to visit on Jan. 20, are both playing in the Semper Fidelis All-America Bowl. The players will be in Phoenix practicing the week of the Fiesta Bowl and will serve as the flag holders for the giant flag at the Fiesta Bowl.
