Englewood (N.J.) Dwight Morrow cornerback George Garrison IV received his first two offers last week, but it was during the weekend that he took a step towards the one he most craves
Garrison was one of three players taken aside at Sunday’s Rutgers camp, selected by defensive backs coaches Bill Busch and Henry Baker for individual workouts.
“It was nice,” Garrison said. “I learned a lot of stuff, coaching points. It just got me better. I learned a lot of good techniques to help improve my game … (Busch and Baker) taught me a lot of stuff, cover two defense, man-to-man, just how to really get a good press on, stuff like that.”
Garrison received offers from Delaware State and Howard last week, but the 6-foot-1 cornerback said he has Rutgers at the top of his list.
With planned trips to Temple, Fordham and Connecticut for camps this offseason, Garrison made sure to make Rutgers his first stop during camp season.
“I’ve been here a couple of times, so I like the environment,” Garrison said. “Every time I come back, I fall in love with it a little bit more because I get to see the coaching aspects of it and how much passion the coaches have so that just gives me more of a boost to want to play here.”
Based on the feedback, Garrison feels confident about the coming months.
“(Busch) is just telling me how I’m a great prospect and how he’s going to look into me, just keep doing what I’m doing because I’m doing a good job at what I’m doing,” Garrison said. “My grades are good, my attitude is good so he’s just pushing for me and I’m working harder and harder for him to have more of a reason to offer me.”
