Recruiting: Standout Lineman Commits?

Offensive lineman Brandon Garrett of LaMarque, Texas came to the Cowboys' mini camp in Houston Wednesday wanting to talk recruiting, but when the 6-6, 285-pound Garrett was told that the coaches could not talk recruiting then he just fell in line for the instruction and drills at the camp. In the end it couldn't stop Garrett from making big news.

"Yes, there is," said Garrett, who is awaiting word on his eligbility for the upcoming season due to age. "I did commit to Oklahoma State. I left the camp and then got on my cell and sent Coach (Joe DeForest) a text message that I was committed to OSU."

Garrett said he would tell us more but first he needed to finish his shift at work, so we'll have more on the Cowboys latest and fourth commitment later in the day.

Garrett was one of nearly 200 high school players that participated in the OSU Houston mini camp held at one of the public school stadiums in Houston. Garrett was part of the LaMarque state championship team last season and had more than 80 pancake blocks on the season while allowing only three sacks. He has good mobility with a reported 5.2 to 5.3 in the 40-yard dash, but his strength numbers really stick out with a 340-pound bench press max and a squat max of 525 pounds.

There was plenty of competition for Garrett with his recruitment as he was also holding offers from Nebraska, Baylor, Houston and Kansas State.
